Legacy Park is a key feature in the rejuvenation and reactivation of the riverside Queens Domain area. The park has been named in recognition of the considerable contribution of Legacy to Hobart and the wider Australian community.
The area between the Soldiers Memorial Oval (SMO) and the Domain Athletic Centre (DAC) has been developed to improve visitor facilities on the Queens Domain and provide one of the City’s best playgrounds.
The park has a large adventure play space that is suitable for children of all ages, plus an accessible community space for barbecues and picnics, an outdoor amphitheatre, two pizza ovens, public toilets and shelters.
Work on the original concept plan for the Soldiers Memorial Oval precinct started in 2010 and was incorporated into the Queens Doman Master Plan.
The staged construction included the reinstatement of 36 trees along the Soldiers Memorial Avenue, upgrading of the car park and construction of a multi-purpose sporting pavilion, now known as the William Keith Eltham Pavilion.
The final stages of work included the construction of a ‘playscape’ children’s play area, wood-fired oven and picnic shelters, and an amphitheatre to create Legacy Park.
The vision for the precinct was always to create a true community space that would be used for a diverse range of activities.

The creation of Legacy Park has been jointly funded by the City of Hobart, the Australian Government through the ANZAC Centenary Public Fund with assistance of the Tasmanian Government by administering the funds for the project.
