Mary Kathleen Memorial Park commemorates the the former uranium mining town of Mary Kathleen.
Following the closure of Mary Kathleen uranium mine in 1982, the Cloncurry Shire Council, with contributions from the local Lions Club and Mary Kathleen Uranium Limited decided to preserve the history of the mine with four buildings from the original mine site: the police station, police residence, town office, and the A.N.Z. bank building which houses a museum set in the park.
