The Kaurna translation of mirnu wirra is golden wattle, which is a historic feature of the park planted in association with the wattle grove originally in the east of the park to commemorate the landing of Australian troops at Gallipoli.

The park is home to multiple sporting fields, as well as the Princess Elizabeth Playground.
