Hi Chad. Further to Pamela's helpful words, can I just mention that there is a good film on the 2010 restoration of the park, including footage of the lodge, on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gFMXdgiE7w
The Lodge has been restored - it was completed last year with the aid of heritage Lottery funding, and it looks wonderful. I'm sure I've got some photos of it. It's now the headquarters of the Park Ranger.
My uncle Bill and his wife Wendy ( my fathers sister ) used to live in the lodge as Bill worked for the council. I was wondering if anyone has any pictures of the lodge or is it now in a state of disrepair. I used to live on Dallam Ave and went to Albert Rd Juniors
