The War Memorial was erected by the people of Lenswood and Forest Range in memory of the fallen of World War One.

It is an unusual shaped monument in the form of a white marble cupola shaped top on a three-tier base that in turn is supported by four white marble pillars surmounted on a concrete pedestal and slab. Between the pillars is a white marble effigy of a stylised cenotaph. On the pedestal face is a white marble panel.

The memorial was cleaned and restored with grant from the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program.  The white picket fence around the memorial was replaced and white crushed marble was placed inside this area. Adelaide Hills Council assisted with funds to remove some of the pine trees.
