Major Lockyer built the first cantonment around this area in 1827, including the Commandant's residence, a hospital, cookhouse, morgue, powder magazine, barracks, vegetable garden, kitchen, quarters for officers, commissariat, blacksmith's shed, boat shed, saw pit and flagpole. The area remained the centre for the town's recreation until the advent of the motor car. Local Aboriginal people used to congregate here.
