Hill Street Hobart

Friends Park



The Society of Friends purchased the small area of land for use as a burial ground in 1836. It was previously part of William Shoobridge's Providence Valley Farm. About 60 people were buried, including George Washington Walker, the founder of the Hobart Savings Bank. The cemetery closed in 1912, and the land was first used as a childrens playground in 1926. Many of the old headstones can still be seen around the edge of the Park
