Bridgetown Memorial ParkPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Derek Graham

A park and pavilion commemorate those who served in World Wars One and Two.

There is a Memorial Gate-house sited at the entry to the park, and inside are several bronze plaques listing the names of all Bridgetown servicemen and women who fought in both wars as well as those who fought in other conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The Bridgetown sub-branch of the Returned Servicemen's League has to decide which of two war memorials will be the scene of future Anzac Day ceremonies. The first war memorial containing the names of all local enlistments is built on a hill overlooking the town. At present memorial gates at the new Memorial Park are being constructed to contain a roll of honour. They will suggest that the old memorial be moved to Memorial Park and the plates from the memorial be placed in the gates.
