Ashfield, Allman Park

Allman Park is located on the corner of Norton Street and Victoria Streets, in the inner west suburb of Ashfield. A memorial water fountain stands in the centre of the park surrounded by a fragrant garden. The plaque reads: Municipality of Ashfield, To the memory of Edward Albert Allman J.P. Alderman 1925 to 1944 Mayor 1938 to 1943, "True Greatness Comes By Service".

  4. That is a good looking monument/fountain - he must have been a great mayor. That was from an era when political leaders acted in the public interest instead of the politicians of today who want to be re-elected instead of serving...

    1. Yes, Ralph. I can't recall any mayors being honoured in this way in recent times.

  5. Great place to catch some peace in the hectic life of everyday.
