The development of Hyde Park took place during the period 1891-1899 and included two lakes with bird sanctuary islands in the middle.
This attracted some of the wealthier members of the community to its surrounds. Amongst them was George Throssell (later elected as the State’s Premier), who built a substantial home in 1901 overlooking the park.[1]
