Eddison Park is a 14 hectare multi-use recreational facility located at the eastern edge of Woden Town Centre on Launceston Street, Phillip. The park features a skate park, play equipment, fitness equipment and a disc golf course and a fixed orienteering course.
Eddison Park is named after the Eddisons who owned the property of ‘Yamba’, predating the development of Woden. Two memorials at the park recall the loss of the three Eddison sons in the Second World War.
Informal sports can be played in the eastern part of the park and picnicking is common. As the development on the common axis matures, the pond and its associated memorial elements are becoming a focus for public use. Aquatic birds have taken up residence around the ornamental pond. The annual Anzac Day memorial services commenced in 1992 still attract up to 4000 school children. Amongst the parks growing natural beauty and memorial elements there are important messages of peace for the people of Canberra.
