Pioneers Memorial Park


Norton Street, Leichhardt


Pioneers Memorial Park is an urban jewel located on the cosmopolitan Norton Street. Formally the Balmain Cemetery, the site received over 10,000 burials of 24 different religious denominations. All but 126 of the burials occurred before December 1908. The Cemetery was renamed Pioneers Memorial Park in 1941 as a lasting tribute to the pioneers of the district and as a place of quiet recreation and enjoyment for future generations. The Park also contains a memorial to the service people of Leichhardt who lost their lives in World War 1 (1914 – 1919) and the Bicentennial Rotunda.
