Key Considerations for the Reserve
This reserve is a former Church of England cemetery and is a heritage item listed on the Wollongong 2009 LEP. This former cemetery is associated with a number of significant people and events from 1833 to 1919. The memorial gates are from 1946 when the cemetery was converted to a rest park. The listing of those that are buried on site is from a more recent time. The area is improved by formal gardens and lawns.
