A beautiful triangular park in Tea Tree Gully


In the centre of the old township of Tea Tree Gully, on North East Road, is a beautiful triangular park called Haines' Memorial Park. This park was named after William Haines, a prominent local landowner, who gave the land to the people of Tea Tree Gully. He stipulated that the park had to be for community use. The park was opened in 1909 by the Governor, Sir Day Hart Bosanquet.




A spacious park with lush green lawn, it is a popular place for family picnics and many community events Exotic trees like the English Oaks and Plane Trees surround the park. There are also palm trees and beds of beautiful roses.




In the middle of the park is a grand rotunda and there are also shady spots with seats to take a rest and admire the beautiful surrounds. A special feature in the park is a historic drinking fountain, which was installed in 1909.



The next time you are in the vicinity of Tea Tree Gully, do stop by and enjoy the beauty of this community park.
