The reflective garden area commemorates the work of volunteers in the Port Pirie region and was unveiled during the International Year of Volunteers in 2001. 

International Year of Volunteers was designated for 2001 by the United Nations General Assembly. The initiative aimed at increased recognition, facilitation, networking and promotion of volunteering, to highlight the achievements of the millions of volunteers worldwide who devote their time to serving others, and to encourage more people globally to engage in volunteering.
