The beautiful heritage Main Gates of Callan Park have had a once-in-a-lifetime makeover.
Over $600K has been spent to repair and conserve the iconic Main Gates on Cecily Street and the Guard House - part of the $14 million in works currently underway on Callan Park.
On Saturday 28 May, together with the Friends of Callan Park, I held a community opening to mark this huge milestone in our campaign to protect Callan Park.
Wins like this don’t happen by accident and it is only thanks to the persistence of local people that we are finally seeing significant restoration works on Callan Park. See full detail of all the works currently under way at Callan Park.
Thank you to the Friends of Callan Park for their constant advocacy, all the heritage experts from the Minister’s Stonework Program, Councillor Kobi Shetty and all our fabulous volunteers who helped out on the day.
Most importantly, I want to thank every single resident who has supported our work to protect Callan Park over the years.
