GREG FEATHERSTONE PARK

10_Greg_Featherstone_Park

This park was built on Railway land as a community project complete with picnic facilities and named after Greg Featherstone who was a long serving staff member of the Rydal Railway Station.

When the station was first built there was also a park and this was designed by the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens. The article from The Sydney Mail 29 September 1937. Öak Tree at Rail Station, gives a retrospective view of the village as well as a “current” 1937 version. The Canadian Oak tree, which gets a special mention, is the background for the photo of Mrs Hunter and her mother Mrs Anderson as she leaves for her honeymoon from Rydal.
