Zetland Park is one of the largest urban parks in the Falkirk Council area. The North entrance to the park is via the War memorial, it's landscape setting epitomises the park's Victorian grandeur with its highly ornate metal gates and scrolled fencework framing the centre piece which is the War memorial structure. This War memorial is particularly fine and was designed by the renowned Architect Sir John Burnet A.R.A. (1857- 1938). The later addition of the Lion and Eagle sculpture was the composition of Alexander Proudfoot (1878-1857).
The Memorial acknowledges the lives lost and sacrifice made in both World Wars. It is fitting and appropriate that the historical and conservation value of the park is protected and recorded as a Centenary Field in recognition and honour of the sacrifice made in World War I and to protect this valued green space for future generations to enjoy.
