The Burgh of Buckhaven and Methil took ownership of the park in 1921 from the Wemyss Estate. From the name it suggests that this park was given to the people of Methil as a memorial to World War I. The War Memorial within the park was unveiled on Saturday 22nd December, 1922 by Lord Wester Wemyss, with a Guard of Honour provided by the 6/7th Black Watch. The memorial is recorded as being "a labour of love" for the architect and has a sculpture of a uniformed royal highlander.
