Blaxland Park - Shelter Sheds

A recent conversation with, long-time resident of Blaxland, Davina Curnow, revealed information that it was her father - Adrian Melvin Donaldson - who built the little shelter sheds (that still exist) in the park at Blaxland located alongside the railway line.  It would seem that instead of war service Mr Donaldson carried out public works.  Over the years the little sheds have served a  multitude of locals, and visitors, when picnics were usual Sunday family outings.

The park, unfortunately, has reduced in size because of road widening, and the bridge that spans the railway alienated the triangular portion where Harold Campbell's World War One monument stands.
