Edwards Pit Park - Skoglund Park

This historic quarry site has been restored with the support of a passionate group of residents, the Pit Park People.

Aerial view of a walkway neighboured by a sportsfields and a small playground.

Walkways meander through restoration plantings, alongside wetlands and across the open spaces to provide a diversity of environments to enjoy on your walk. The site formerly provided clay for brick manufacture at the nearby Hoffman Kiln and subsequently hardfill for construction of the airport runway.

There are great views into the Pit from the adjacent Skoglund Park sportfields.
