The NSW War Memorials Register is undergoing essential maintenance. Submissions are not being accepted at this time. Read more here. We apologise for the inconvenience.
The Forestville War Memorial Playing Fields comprises 19.15 hectares of land south and west of the Forestville RSL Club. In 2015, the Warringah Council approved the enlargement of the existing memorial park to this considerably larger zone.
The playing fields are situated between Melwood Avenue, Lanford Avenue and a tree line north to Forestville Avenue. The area comprises playing fields for rugby, soccer, cricket, netball, tennis courts and associated amenities buildings. There is also a skate facility, children’s playground and carparks.
A Memorial Walk was dedicated on 11 April 2015 and runs adjacent to Melwood Avenue from the entrance to the main carpark for 100 metres to the netball courts carpark.
