This beautiful park was opened 1906 and has a number of different areas including a heritage rose garden, the wisteria walk, the Cenotaph honouring World War I soldiers and a shelter built in 1913 in memory of Mrs Elizabeth Macarthur-Onslow.
Mrs Elizabeth Macarthur-Onslow, a granddaughter of John Macarthur, gifted Macarthur Park to the people of Camden in 1905. The park is home to Camden's War Memorial and the Faithfull-Anderson Fountain which once stood, where the roundabout is now, at the intersection of John and Argyle St. The park is well known for its heritage rose garden.
In 1905, Camden was a rural village and the land for the park was at the perimeter of residential blocks. The forethought used in donating the park has ensured the people of Camden can still enjoy the rural atmosphere of the past that the park engenders.
