The Wright family have been long time residents of Boundary Street adjoining the park. Henry Wright (1897-1960) moved into his Hemsley Estate house in 1926, following service as a private with the AIF in England and France during WW1. Henry’s son Laurence Wright (1928-2008) lived in the house all his life and served in the Citizen Military Forces from 1948 for several years. He was a signaller with the unit based in Warrane Road, North Willoughby, then joined the Australian Intelligence Corps. Laurie had a passion for military vehicle and equipment research and his many years of documentation have contributed much to this aspect of military history.
