It marks the multi-million pound transformation of the estate which saw former residents dispersed across the city.
Association chairman Ernie Clarke, aged 64, of West Street, said: "The idea behind the wall is to capture a sense of history."
The wall will be revealed by MP Rob Flello on Sunday during a community event being held on the park.
The event, which will include a bouncy castle, barbecue, raffle and sports activities, runs from 10am to 4pm.
LONGTON: The boss of Stoke-on-Trent's £11 million national construction training centre is to step down after less than a year in the job.
Jonathan Davis became chief executive at the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE) in Longton in January.
Mr Davis, who will leave next month, said he was "passionate" about CoRE, adding: "I will continue to work to help ensure its success."
Chairman Peter Bounds said Mr Davis had got the centre off to "a flying start."
CoRE, which opened last year, provides training on the latest 'green' construction and refurbishment techniques.
Blue Sky Building director Timothy Renwick has been recruited as interim chief executive while a permanent replacement is sought to oversee completion of its conference centre and demonstrator space, which are due to open in March.
IPSTONES: Plans have been drawn up to install a wind turbine in the countryside.
John Whitehouse, from Ipstones Edge, has applied for permission to put in a 15 metre-high turbine at Upper Greenhills Farm.
A design and access statement supporting the application states: "The proposed location is 200 metres from the nearest property.
"The average wind reading at the proposed site is well above average and is comfortably within recommended guidelines."
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is currently consulting with residents and a decision is due next month.
