A park commemorates those who served in World War One.

Planning began in 2013 to upgrade the area surrounding the Gates and on Remembrance Day of 2016, the park was unveiled by Seymour RSL. 

The Gallipoli, Peace and RSL roses line the paths and the Australian and New Zealand flags fly in to commemorate the ANZACS.   At the front of the Gates is "Bluey", the statue of a World War One soldier, who stands atop a star-shaped memorial holding 10 glass panels. 

These panels detail the World War One service of 50 of the district's men and women along with a history of the Seymour Hospital and the RSL.  The panels include photos taken during service overseas, as well as images of personal war-time items, letters, etc. donated by local families.
