Featherston Street (see map at bottom of page)
This park is a brilliant place to walk your dog off-leash. Please be aware though that dogs are prohibited in the sportsgrounds in neighbouring Skoglund Park.
History of Pit Park
The former clay pit is named for Robert Price Edwards (1854-1924), who established his brick-making business here in 1900. In 1904 Edwards started construction of the Hoffman Kiln, a category one heritage building you can still see on Featherston Street. The kiln was capable of firing 9,000 bricks in a single chamber, with clay sourced on-site.
