SX4655 : Victoria Park

Victoria Park
Victoria Park
This park used to be the upper part of the Stonehouse Creek tidal inlet ( SX4654 : Sunday Morning Rugby on Stonehouse Creek ). It had been used as a tidal pond to power mills situated on a bridge across the creek close by where the photographer is standing. This area of town is today known as Millbridge. By the late 19th century this part of the creek was known as deadlake and was becoming a health hazard to local residents. After the very hot summer of 1887 efforts were started to fill in the creek and it was officially opened as a park in 1902.
