A wonderfully, happy photo of Stonefield Public Park in the early 1970’s. Shared here by Marie Kelly, the woman pictured is Margaret Kelly (Magunnigal) with son Craig. Pictured is the small oval (blue) pool with the park stretching out in the background looking over towards John Street.
The horizon may be misleading if you’re looking at this from a modern context, with the bing shown at Criaghead on the far left, now very much reduced in height.
Whats your memories of playing in the park, and the little oval pool?
