The planting of trees as a dedication to individual service personnel who gave their lives while serving their countries in time of war seems to be an Australian innovation. The idea was taken up in Kings Park in 1918 by Mr Arthur Lovekin, an original member of the Kings Park Board. Dedication plaques occur along May Drive, Lovekin Drive and Marri Walk.

There are currently almost 1800 plaques along Honour Avenues in Kings Park. Further details, including specific location maps, are available via an online database.
