Event description
Join us for a guided walk around the Harold Park area and learn about its history.

About this event

You are invited to join Jan Macindoe in exploring the swampy end of Glebe. Allen’s Glen (aka Frog’s Hollow, Harold Park and more) has been transformed many times. These changes reflect the many, and sometimes sudden, changes in technology and transport over time, and even changes in accepted ideas of how to have fun on a Friday night.

Beginning at the Tramsheds, and helped by old maps and photos, we will look for evidence of the original landscape, and its varied uses and stories, as we wander from Harold Park, along the canal (now being ‘naturalised’) to Rozelle Bay. We will aim to end our wander at the former Toxteth House, as we try to imagine it in its splendid forest setting in the mid-nineteenth century.

Jan Macindoe has lived in Glebe/Forest Lodge for over 40 years, and has long had a great interest in the history of the area. Together with her husband Neil and friend Liz Simpson-Booker, she developed the various walks published on the Glebe Walks website. Since moving down the hill to Harold Park seven years ago, she has developed an affection for the swampy end of Glebe, and its many transformations.
