    History & Achievements :
    The land comprising Birchgrove Park comprises a portion of a 1796 grant to Private George Whitfield
     of the NSW Corps and an area of reclaimed land from as Snails Bay. Whitfield received a grant of land measuring thirty acres from Governor Hunter on 15th September 1796 
    The original grant document states that the area was to be known as “Whitfield’s Farm”, although it
    is uncertain how much of a farm was actually established during Whitfield’s relatively short
    ownership. One source states that early manuscripts (not cited) refer to Whitfield’s Farm as one
    “upon which dairying and fruit growing were profitably pursued”.
    In 1800 Whitfield’s original grant was purchased by a KNIGHT , Richard
