Jugiong War Memorial ParkPrint Page
The Memorial Park originally commemorated those who served in World War Two. On Anzac Day 2014, additional plaques were added to the gates listing the names of those from Jugiong and district who served in World War One and World War Two. The gates of the park were dedicated in memory of two local soldiers who lost their lives in World War Two.
Jugiong's recreation ground, which is dedicated as a memorial to the men who fought in the last war will soon be the picked sports area of the district. The villagers, with a great sense of civic pride, are turning this area into a first class park. Trees which are now two years old, will soon provide ample shade for summer sports, and when these are properly established, and the layout more clearly defined, the village of Jugiong will be able to boast of what is one of the best parks and sporting grounds in the south.
