The State Heritage Register-listed park pays tribute to World War I soldiers. It was officially opened to the public back in April 1921. It was designed by Superintendent Harry Moore of Brisbane, who was known for creating magnificent gardens – especially those in New Farm Park, the Yeronga Memorial Park, and Newstead Park.

The Memorial Park is filled with beautiful plants and flowers, including jacarandas and poinsettias, planted to serve as a living tribute to the men who died in service. Aside from being a notable soldiers’ memorial, it also honours James Nash, a well-loved bandmaster responsible for discovering gold in Gympie.

Today, the park and its elegant pavilion provide the community with a shelter surrounded by nature where they can gather, relax, and enjoy. It has always been an iconic landmark in the heart of Gympie, as this public parkland has significant historical and cultural value.
