On Saturday 18 March 1921, a patriotic function was held in the Kootingal Village which was organised by the Kootingal and District Monument Committee. In reporting the event, the Northern Daily Leader on 22 March 1921 reported: 'The proceedings commenced with the dedication and opening to the public of the enclosed grounds in the centre of which the monument has been erected ...'
Mr W Baldwin, chairman of the Committee, called upon Councillor Peek to name the park 'Memory Park which was dedicated to the public' which they should always look upon it as sacred to the memory of all those who took part in the war'.
Today various war memorials can be found in the park.
