This park, originally a 21 acre reserve located between Wynnum and Manly, was set aside for showgrounds in 1918. It was first known as Russell Park after then-Mayor Richard Russell, but was renamed Memorial Park when a memorial avenue was designed and planted on the Peel Street side in 1919. Purchased by the Wynnum Town Council in 1923, the reserve was used as a showground, sportsground and recreation area for residents in the Wynnum-Manly area. The Wynnum High and Intermediate School absorbed just over two acres of the park in 1939, including the memorial avenue, and a further four acres in 1950. The rest of the site continues as Wynnum Memorial Park, providing a reserve, play facilities and sporting grounds for the local community.
