I appreciate this a lot and thank the Council/Parks for looking after it etc. The younger people of today may not understand what the War etc times were like but hopefully some may have their attention drawn to the Memorial and investigate why it's there for themselves. This Park is visited by many out of town people and I think it's got a lot to offer including this and the restored Lake with Fountain and many visiting Birds/Swans. The Canadian Geese stop by the hundred for a rest on their migration.

Widnes War Memorial stands in Victoria Park, It commemorates the serving men who lost their lives in the two world wars. The memorial consists of an obelisk in Portland stone on a plinth of York stone. It was unveiled in 1921, and more names were added in 1950 for those who fell in WW2.
It is a magnificent structure, the obelisk itself standing over 40ft high. it incorporates "symbolic imagery" and "richly detailed carvings",
Widnes is not a large town but this monument represents a magnificent testament to its fallen sons.

We visited Victoria Park recently and the War memorial.
This was very inspirational and spiritual experience, you cant help but think
of years gone by and the sacrifices made by previous generations.
A must if you are in the area, kept exceptionally well, very clean and tidy around the immediate area and most of the Park.

This War Memorial has stood in Victorial Park since 1921. It is well worth a visit while in this lovely quiet park. It commemorates soldiers killed in both the world wars.
