Forestville War Memorial Playing Fields


The Anzac Memorial Pathway was opened on 11th April 2015 by Mrs Margaret Abbott, wife of the Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Tony Abbott MP, Michael Regan, Mayor of Warringah Council and Mr Richard Gordon, President of the Forestville War memorial playing Fields Committee to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac and Australia’s involvement in World War I (WWI).


An initiative of Richard Gordon in conjunction with the Forestville War Memorial Playing Felds Committee and ably assisted by Warringah Council, it was financially assisted by The Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program and Forestville RSL sub-Branch.


The pathway consists of 10 plinths on which are placed a series of plaques outlining different aspects of Australia’s military service. Each of these plaques may also have a notation highlighting a particular battle or occasion.
