This gorgeous little park on Verdon Street, Inglewood features several memorial monuments, including a creative installation commemorating the town's rich mining history. 

The mining monument is a must-see for anyone visiting Inglewood. It creatively displays items, photographs and details about the history, features and people of this remarkable old mining town.

A picnic table sits between the trees on a grassy lawn, with a drinking fountain and rubbish bin also present. 

A stone monument at the park displays the following information: 

Inglewood was founded on gold

In 1859 alluvial gold was first discovered by Thomas Thompson, Joseph & Alexander Thompson & Joseph Honey in rough scrub at Thompsons Gully near Rose Hill. 

A township of diggers and traders that quickly sprung up was named Inglewood, later Old Inglewood.

In 1860 a new find at Potters Hill, 3km south, started a new rush and Inglewood where it stands today was established.

In memory of Jean and Ian Wemyss, granddaughter and great grandson of Thomas Thompson

"Inglewood... A monument to the pioneers of its discovery."
