Civic Park War Memorial was officially rededicated in 2003 in memory of servicemen and women who served in all wars and conflictS in which Australia has been involved. 

Hamilton R.S.L. Sub-branch last night approved of Civic Park as the site of the proposed cenotaph memorial to war dead. The District Council had asked the sub-branch to approve one of the alternate sites - Civic Park or Parnell Place. These had been chosen by a council sub-committee, the County Planner (Mr. Stone) and sculptor Paul Beadle. The President (Mr. T. Fitzgerald) said Civic Park was the most desirable place for a cenotaph. It was more central and could accommodate a larger crowd.
