Tall column with obelisk commemorates councillor Harry Malcolm Rogers.

Harry Rogers was very active in the civic and social life of Coburg between the wars. Throughout his life he had devoted himself to the work of improving reserves, equipping children's playgrounds and organising sporting activities.

He was one of three elected to Council in August 1931. Harry was made Chairman of the Parks and Gardens Committee, but his time on Council was short. He attended his last meeting on 9 August 1933 and, contracting pneumonia, died the next month at the age of 46.
