The park commemorates Eleanor Shipley.

Eleanor Brisbane Shipley was the wife of George William Shipley who came into possession of the land in Moffat Beach (which now constitutes Eleanor Shipley Park, Moffat Beach), from Francis Moffat in October 1923. On 28 October 1929, Mrs Shipley, by then a widow, transferred the land to the Landsborough Shire Council in Trust “for the public pleasure, recreational use and sport". The land is never to be sold. (It is unclear as to if the land was a donation or if the Council paid for it, but rumour has it both ways).
