Westdale Memorial Park

Tamworth

 

Corner of Flinders Street and Blaxland Way - Tamworth

 

A memorial park featuring a white entrance arch with brick piers, and turnstile, with the words "Westdale Memorial Park" worked in to the top of the arch in an ornate styling. 

The Westdale Memorial Hall once stood at this site, opened in 1924, last used around 1967, and demolished by 1970.

A GROUP of volunteers working together to restore an historic Tamworth park have been given a boost with a state government grant.

A $5000 grant announced by Minister for Veteran’s Affairs David Elliott on Friday will go towards restoring the Westdale Memorial Park to its former glory.

Volunteers were joined by local veterans for the announcement, which will see the entrance arch restored, a new honour roll and revitalisation works to be carried out in the park grounds.

The grant will go towards the first major refurbishment of the park since the 1970s.

The restoration project was a joint project between the Tamworth Men’s Shed and the Older Men’s Network with assistance from Tamworth Regional Council.

The park is now also formally recognised on a national registry of memorials.
