Langlands Park Memorial Gates were originally erected to commemorate the men of Coorparoo Shire who fell in World War One. A plaque was added at a later date to commemorate the men and women who served in World War Two.

The official opening of the Coorparoo Memorial Gates at Langlands Park took place on the 21st May 1921. The ceremony was performed by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Matthew Nathan.
