Long Description:
Veteran’s Point Gardens is located at the foot of Harwood Avenue and commemorates the Town’s history. The Nautical flag pole is significant as the town is named after HMS Ajax. HMS Ajax was a Leander class light cruiser which served with the British Royal Navy during World War II. She became famous for her part in the Battle of the River Plate, the Battle of Crete, the Battle of Malta and as a supply escort in the Battle of Tobruk


Veteran's Point Gardens are dedicated to the HMS Ajax, the Defence Industries Limited (D.I.L.) Plant, and the employees who made this area their home during WWII.

There is interpretive signage located throughout the park which celebrates the cultural heritage and history of Ajax, and WWII. In honour of Ajax’s naval history, architects designed this memorial to resemble a ship - the street lights serve to appear like masts, and the information area was designed with features common to a ship’s bow.
