The name 'Mortdale Memorial Park' was assigned the Reserve in July 1997, and is a fitting war memorial commemorating Mortdale people who served their country in time of war. The park features a central brick cenotaph to which is affixed a number of honour rolls.
Flag staffs, service commemorative objects, and a number of individual memorials are all set within a well-kept tranquil grassed area with numerous shade trees. Individual Navy, Airforce and Nursing Service memorials are presented within the section below.
NOTE: Some name plaques list personnel under composite war headings, such as 'Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam' OR 'World War II Korea'. In the lists below, conflicts are included only when clearly identified for the person concerned.
The Main Plaque for the Memorial Park reads:
