Glenorchy War Memorial Park is dedicated to those who gave their lives in various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The park was originally unveiled to commemorate the fallen of World War One, World War Two and The Korean War.

Glenorchy is to have a war memorial to honour members of the municipality who served and gave their lives in the two world wars and the Korean war. A recent meeting of representatives of the Glenorchy Council and the Glenorchy sub-branch of the R.S.L. formed the Glenorchy War Memorial Committee. Its first task will be to decide upon a suitable memorial and to discuss ways and means of raising funds in co-operation with the council. It has been suggested that the memorial be either a monument, public hall, or public reserve.
