Marks Park Memorial a Monument to Diversity

Marks Park has officially been endorsed by Waverley Council as the site for the Bondi Memorial Project. This allows for commissioning of a public artwork to serve as a memorial to the men who were viciously assaulted and murdered in homophobic attacks in Sydney over multiple decades.
