Heroes Park was established to commemorate those who served in World War One.

In 1915 the park was dedicated as a World War One Heroes Park. Many trees were planted by school children, some honouring soldiers. Over the years the park deteriorated and in 1986 the creek was cleaned out ; an island, picnic area, bridge and memorial plaques were installed. This was the town’s project for the SA Jubilee 150.
