The North Fremantle War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One. The names of those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two were added at a later date.

The memorial is a statue of a soldier, facing south, standing on a stone plinth, surrounded by a cast-iron rung fence. There are three bench seats surrounding the monument. In the park, there is a wooden flagpole in the corner, and three sheoak and two oak trees.

The foundation stone for the North Fremantle Fallen Soldiers Memorial was laid by the Governor of Western Australia, Sir Francis Newdegate on the 21st January 1923. When completed the memorial would have the names of the fallen inscribed upon it.
