Lake Macquarie History

Park Parade

Park Parade was named in 1955, reportedly because there is a small park where this road commences. When part of Primrose Street was closed off, Park Parade was extended over it. Quigley's Grave is here on a little hill, which was a burial site for early Teralba settlers. No other headstones remain. This cemetery was used before the official cemetery near Booragul Railway Station was opened.
