Kingaroy, South Burnett Area
Kingaroy's beautiful Memorial Park is located near the heart of town and is the major formal park in the Shire. The War Memorial is located in the park and is a band rotunda constructed of eight classical columns, supporting a frieze and a domed roof. The frieze contains the names of the areas where the armed forces fought in World War I. Sir Thomas William Glasgow dedicated the memorial on 29 June 1932. To the west of the rotunda is the Stone of Remembrance honouring those who served from World War I to Vietnam. All ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day services are held there.
The park has extensive flower gardens, paved paths, modern play equipment, picnic tables, barbecue facilities (coin operated on William Street side) and amenities which also have disabled access. The park also offers an off leash area for dogs on the Alford Street side. It is also home to the annual Wine and Food in the Park Festival held each March.
The Kingaroy swimming pool is beside Memorial Park on William Street and this adds to making the park a pleasant place to stop and have a quiet break and relax while taking advantage of the facilities.
