  • Profile

    The Mosman Park Memorial Park was established on 25 August 1934 to commemorate the local people who served in World War One. Originally called the Buckland Hill Memorial Park, the park is located on Palmerston Street, Mosman Park, in Western Australia.

    According to the Western Australian Government, Heritage Council, there is a long history of tree planting on the site: in 1905 trees were planted, and in 1934-5 the park was developed as a Soldiers’ Memorial Park, with Norfolk Island Pines (Araucaria heterophylla) planted by families of servicemen killed in WWI, accompanied by the erection of gates at western and northern entrances.

    Read The West Australian newspaper article about the official tree planting ceremony on the National Library of Australia website.
