After public calls for donations towards the cost of palm trees, an avenue of Washingtonia filifera (Cotton Palm) was planted on 11th September 1915, along the banks of the Murray River adjacent to Murray Avenue. “The dual purpose of the tree was to beautify the town and commemorate the brave men who have gone from Renmark to fight for King and Country” (RENMARK’S ARBOR DAY, 1915, September 16, Murray Pioneer, p. 6)
The remaining World War One specimens are a mere vestige of the original plantings.
