Anzac Park, Tamworth

Description

 

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by the Australian and New Zealand forces in the First World War at Gallipoli, Turkey. The word Anzac stands for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who took part in that action.  

It was on the 14 May 1912, that the Tamworth Municipal Council adopted the name of 'Wentworth Park' for the park in Brisbane Street.  On 9 May 1916, Ald. Bourne moved at the council meeting that the park lying between Brisbane Streets be in future known as 'Anzac Park'; the motion was carried.

Two columns were later erected with the metal framed- Anzac Park, Tamworth City Council.
