Natural and Cultural Heritage

  • Vegetation Community E. piperita – A. costata Open Forest
  • Park was dedicated in 1891 and contains period trees from 1910 set around a recreational oval and conserves an area of remnant bushland. In 1966 an athletics ground was constructed beside the oval to attract top athletes. During the construction of the M2 part of the park was threatened but instead a tunnel was built under the park. Residents campaigned to save the trees which today form a thick canopy.
