The larger of these centres is located south of the railway along tree-lined Commercial Road, Tarwin Street and George Street. Legacy Place is an open square located in Commercial Road opposite Tarwin Street and features a monument dedicated to Sir Stanley Savige who was born in Morwell and founded the organisation which cares for families of deceased war veterans. A pedestrian underpass beside Legacy Place provides a link to Morwell’s other commercial centre north of the railway along Princes Drive and Church Street where there are more shops, a post office, hotels and churches. The large Mid Valley Shopping Centre is located on the eastern side of town.

A characteristic of Morwell is the use of roses within many of its gardens. The greatest concentration of them can be found at the Morwell Centenary Rose Garden at the northern end of Maryvale Crescent and along Commercial Road.
