Armidale Central Park (1874 - )

Archival ResourcesPublished Resources
Armidale, New South Wales, Australia

In 1874, the land known as Reserve Number 8 was dedicated by Armidale Council as park space. In 1882, Brother Francis Gatti was commissioned to purchase trees and by 1887, the area was proclaimed as a park. A Boer War Memorial Band rotunda was opened in 1902 and 1922 the park was re-designed to accommodate the World War I Memorial. The park has always been a site for public gatherings and performances and offers comforting shade during the summer months.
