Parks and reserves - Campbelltown City Council

Mawson Park

Mawson Park is located on the corner of Queen and Cordeaux Streets in the CBD of Campbelltown. The park is named after Dr Mawson, brother of Sir Douglas Mawson of Antarctica fame.

Mawson Park is utilised daily by a broad cross section of the community. It is heavily utilised at lunch time by workers in the CBD and also by commuters, parents with young children and generally as a meeting place by school children.

The park is the site of the War Memorial and is often used for formal ceremonies such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day. The park is also popular for wedding photos because of its close proximity to St Peters Anglican Church on Cordeaux Street.

Mawson Park's facilities include seating, toilets, extensive floral gardens and children's playground equipment.
