An arch at the entrance of Eureka Hall commemorates Helen McKay, a life member of the Eureka Stockade Progress Association who spent 40 years raising funds to beautify the park.

Althought the arch was erected in 1953, the plaque was not unveiled until May 1998 during a McKay - Reddie family reunion organised by Di Christensen.
