Statement of Interest

This pavilion is a well preserved example of a gift to the town from ex-patriot natives of Montrose. John and David Traill, of Melbourne and West Bromwich respectively, presented over ?2,000 to provide improvements in the town and the building of a pavilion. The pavilion was opened on 8th August 1913. Traill Drive had been opened in 1912. Information from plaque within pavilion.
