Description

Memorial gates consisting of four concrete pillars are situated at the entrance to the park. A metal arch is above the gates.

"Col. Anderson, V.C., of Young, will be approached to officially open the Canowindra Memorial Park on November 11. President of Boree Shire Council, Cr. C. McCarron, said this at last week's monthly meeting of the Council in Cudal. He told the Council that a recent meeting of the Canowindra sub-branch of the RSL had decided to ask Col. Anderson to perform the ceremony. The Shire Engineer (Mr. R. T. Matthews) said an Orange man had offered to inscribe the names of deceased personnel on the memorial tablets free of charge. "A number of flowering shrubs have been planted on the embankment and annuals will also be planted at a later date," he said."
