Rumsey Rose Garden - Parramatta NSW 18th May 2012

 The Rumsey Rose Garden was opened in 1995 after being established to display the heritage rose collection that was donated by Heather and Roy Rumsey to the City of Parramatta.
For generations this area was originally part of the home territory of the Burramatta clan of the Darug Aboriginal people.
In 1790 it was recorded that there were 24 convict carpenters and 16 convict sawyers employed in the government lumber yard that was here after the establishment of the colonial settlement of Rose Hill. In 1815 the lumber yard was relocated and became part of the Governor's Private Domain. The Rose Hill Bowling Club built a club house with bowling greens, croquet lawns and tennis courts. These buildings were demolished in the 1980's.
(All the names were taken from lables if they had them).
