This park has been named to honour Mr Gus Wagenknecht, groundsman and gardener responsible for the initial layout and beautification of the Currumbin State School Grounds and one of those who suggested the development of this area of parkland which was previously tidal flat.

He was a dedicated civic minded citizen who spared no effort in supporting many local sporting, scouting and church organisations.

Gus Wagenknecht and his son Roger, were tragically killed in a road accident on 21st July, 1974.
