A limestone wall supporting a tiled roof structure, the Memorial, erected in 1917, acted as a shelter for the then adjacent paddling pool. The pool was said to be the first of its kind in New Zealand.
The pool and the memorial, with its bronze bust of former Napier Mayor and MP, George H. Swan, who promoted Marine Parade development, was dedicated in February 1918.
