Crookwell War Memorial commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

The Memorial comprises of several structures developed over a period of time. The main structure, built in 1967, consists of a concrete shell sheltering a central Cross of Sacrifice. On either side stand two granite columns, commemorating World War One veterans. These columns were originally part of the Memorial Gate which was situated at the entrance to the Park. This Gate was installed in 1925.

In front is the new memorial which was unveiled on the 29th March 2003. This is of sandstone block construction with bronze honour rolls attached. These plaques list all local servicemen who served from the Boer War to the Vietnam War and also contains a plaque dedicated to those who served in Korea.
