The highest point in the Canterbury Local Government Area this
park is situated on corners of three properties originally granted
in the 1790s. The South Ashfield Brick and Tile Company once
operated the South Ashfield Brickworks (later called the Ashbury
Brickyard) from this site. This Company was incorporated on 14
December 1910 and tapped local Wianamatta Series shales “to
manufacture and sell brick tiles, drain pipe and all other kinds of
Just prior to the purchase of the works property by Brickworks
Ltd in 1938, two young boys, Charles Dunn (age nine) and his
brother William (age six), who lived nearby in Holden Street,
drowned in the pool at the bottom of the unused pit. The date brick
production ceased is unknown, however, the quarry was still
providing shale to the company's works at Burwood in 1965. The
disused-brickpit was purchased by the NSW Government in 1978 for
use as open space. The surviving single stack and kiln were
demolished in 1987 by Canterbury Council to make way for Peace Park
which was so named in recognition of the International Year of
Peace. Peace Park features a ceremonial paved area to pay tribute
to the site's previous history of brick manufacture. Trees,
symbolic of peace in both Eastern and Western cultures, were
planted by students of Canterbury Girls High School during 1992.
Peace Park was officially opened during 1993.
