Historic sign at the site of the Cooks River Dam in Kendrrick Park Tempe

Marrickville Council has recently installed 19 historical signs around the municipality.  I think it is a wonderful thing to be able to stop & learn about the significant history of our municipality & thank Council for doing this.

There is a sign located outside outside the Greek Bakery on Illawarra Road Marrickville & one in Enmore Park, which is our oldest park.  Council’s press release said, “Other sign locations include the Cooks River Dam, Petersham Train Station, Petersham Cemetery & Johnson Estate in Stanmore.”

Council intends to create a map for self-guided walks of the historic sites.
