The memorial was erected in memory of those from the district who died or were killed in World War One. The names of those who died or were killed in World War Two were added to the memorial at a later date.

Tuesday, March 29, was an eventful day in the history of Lucindale, being the occasion of the opening of the park and the unveiling of the monument erected thereon to perpetuate the memory of the brave lads who went from the Lucindale district to fight for the Empire in the great war, and made the supreme sacrifice.  The monument is composed of Angaston marble, the base of which is 6 ft. square. There are two tiers above the base, and they are surmounted by a pedestal. The height of the monument is 16 ft. On it is an inscription in black lettering of the names of those who fell in the war.

Mr. V. G Petherick MP formally unveiled the monument, which was covered with the Union Jack, by loosing a ribbon, and said that on behalf of the people of Lucindale he unveiled the monument to the glorious dead.
