Lily Pond And Colorful Gardens
Photograph - Photography
Photograph taken at Fagan Park in Sydney's north. It is a beautiful and very large bicentennial park with pretty gardens, lily ponds and lots of wild life.
Fagan Park covers an area of approximately 55 hectares and is
located on Arcadia Road, Galston. The site was donated by the
Fagan family to the Crown, with Hornsby Shire Council appointed
as sole trustee for the park.
The park was adopted as Council�s bicentennial project and was
officially opened in November 1988.
Fagan Park stands on land which was part of the original grant
to George Hall. The land was purchased by the Fagan family
and was developed as a citrus orchard. Following the death of
Samuel Fagan, the ownership of the land changed to his son,
Bruce Fagan, who was renowned for the high quality jersey
cattle he ran on the property.
In June 1977, Bruce Fagan approached the Shire President and
Shire Clerk of Hornsby Shire Council to discuss the future use of
the property as a recreational and cultural centre to perpetuate
the Fagan family name.
