Overview

To refer to the Parramatta Park as just your regular neighborhood park would be unjust. The existence of the park is entwined with the history of the region as well as the country. Once the home of aboriginal settlers, the park was where the Darug tribe lived, and the proof of this can be found in several artifacts of archeological significance in some pockets of the park. The park is also where Governor Philips founded the second European settlement in New South Wales, and the area served as an essential feeding ground for the settlers on account of the land's rich agricultural potential. The Parramatta Park has been placed on UNESCO's World Heritage List because it is also home to some of the country's oldest buildings, like the Old Government House and the Dairy Cottage. See the website or call to know more about the park.
