The Soldiers Memorial Gardens commemorates those from Prospect who lost their lives in World War One. A Memorial Arch stands at the entrance to the gardens

A big area of land near the Prospect Oval--formerly used as a parking ground for motor cars-has been transformed by the Prospect City Council within a few months into a picturesque memorial gardens. The reserve, at the entrance of which is a memorial arch, has been constructed to commemorate the valor of Prospect's fallen war heroes. At the last meeting of the council it was decided that the Governor (Sir Winston Dugan) should be invited to perform the official opening of the gardens on April 26. Lawns, flower beds, and neatly graded paths have made the new gardens an impressive sight.
