Shaw Park

Shaw Park

150 Shaw Road, Wavell Heights

The park is important to the local community as a place commemorating the district’s involvement in the major wars and offensives of the 20th century. A conspicuous local landmark, the Nundah War Memorial is an elegant, striking monument standing at the high point of a sloping open grassed area. Important for its design achievement, the well conceived arrangement is a good example of the work of the notable Ipswich mason Frank Williams. The early inscriptions on the monument are important in reflecting the attitudes of nationalism and imperial sentiment of the period of the Great War.
