Wilberforce Park contains a white stone obelisk with the impression of crossed rifles at the top. The memorial is surrounded by a circular, black-iron picket fence. The names are imprinted in black on white marble. It was dedicated on 12 October 1918, and relocated to the park in 1966. This memorial was origionally the Ebenezer war memorial but with council area boundries changing it became the Wilberforce memorial. Next to the obelisk is a white flagpole. Also, at the entrance to the park at the corner of Duke and George Roads are a set of gates which were dedicated to those who served in the Second World War on 19 August 1947.
