The location of Duncan Chapman's memorial statue is currently under analysis with our own Senior Architect, Grant Calder, meeting on site to discuss possible options.
The following article was released by the Fraser Coast Chronicle to discuss:
Duncan Chapman's statue is being carved in NSW in time to be unveiled on Anzac Day next year but its final resting place in Maryborough's Queens Park is still being determined.
Examining aspects and angles at the end of Adelaide St on Wednesday were members of the Duncan Chapman Statue Appeal Committee and two men who have been charged with developing a concept plan for the memorial precinct.
Architect Grant Calder of Crossley Architects and Gerard Canavan of Lark Landscape and Urban Design have been engaged through the Fraser Coast Regional Council to draw up a concept plan and model of the memorial precinct.
"It's an exciting project and a beautiful site," said Mr Calder.
Mayor Gerard O'Connell, a member of the committee appointed as a sub-committee of the Maryborough RSL, said the positioning and angle of the statue would be governed by other aspects of the memorial plan.
The Maryborough lieutenant who was the first Anzac ashore at Gallipoli will be central to the precinct, which will form a new entrance to the park.
