Welcome to Callan Park

Callan Park is the traditional land of the Wangal people.

Greater Sydney Parklands manages 38 of the 61 hectares of the park. NSW Health manages the remaining areas.

It is the site of one of Sydney’s first purpose-built mental health facilities which followed reforms in treatment in the 1870s. The buildings and grounds of the facility remain within the grounds of Callan Park today.

Given this history as a place of healing, respite and care, the plan for Callan Park proposes a series of parkland improvements that celebrate the park’s unique heritage and picturesque waterfront setting.
