The Mount Pleasant Memorial Avenue was established in 1934 to commemorate the local soldiers who lost their lives in World War One.

The Avenue was planted with 12 Cypress Pine (Callitris spp.) donated by Dr Cowling in memory of the the local soldiers of the district who lost their lives during World War One. In 2004 the trees were removed and Claret Ash trees were planted as replacements. This is located Memorial Ave, Mount Pleasant, in South Australia. A memorial plaque at the corner of Melrose Street and Memorial Avenue marks the Avenue.
