A park and gates commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

In June 1922, the Harrisville District Welfare Committee and Returned Soldiers League amalgamated and pooled their funds amounting to £200 for the purpose of erecting a suitable war memorial for the shire. A property in the heart of town was purchased for the purpose of a park. The committee hoped to raise £1000 and make the memorial park not unworthy of the shire's 23 fallen heroes in the Great War.
