The rich heritage of the Berry's Bay foreshore is now celebrated in a series of signs installed in 2007 in Carradah Park (the former BP site).
The interpretive signs unravel the many layers of history of the site, once a popular camping and fishing area for the Cammeraygal Aboriginal peoples, through to its development for a range of industrial uses, to the remediation and rehabilitation of the site into the spectacular new harbourside recreational area we have today.
The signs include a large diagram that details the layout of the 32 tanks that were a feature of the former BP oil terminal. A series of smaller marker signs also explain particular features of the site, such as the many remnants of industrial heritage.
Directional signs including maps of the site are located to guide park users around the pathways in the park and to nearby open space areas.
The site itself is part of the North Sydney Circle Walk and also the regional Harbour Circle Walk (Balls Head Loop).
Find more information on these and other walks in the area on our Walking webpage.
Why not spend a day on the peninsula and enjoy the parkland on the former BP site, the beautiful Balls Head bushland area and some of the adjacent walks such as the Gadyan Track Aboriginal heritage walk on nearby Berry Island.
The Carradah Park signage was jointly funded by North Sydney Council and the Metropolitan Greenspace Grant Program (2007).
