Geocache Description:

After hitting 100 finds this week I thought it was time for my first hide! You have a very short and straight forward 2 step micro multi to track down. I have noticed a distinct lack of caches in the inner west area and came across this park while on a cache ride. Thought it would be a great place to bring you to. I lived in the area for over 20 years and didnt know this was here! Heaps of family facilites and BBQs and a bit of local history too. Hope you enjoy my first hide.

Park History:

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 pottery wares”.

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.
