Callan Park was a purpose built psychiatric hospital situated in Rozelle in the 1880's. At the time it was the most expensive building project in the nation. It is a large property running down to the harbour front and has more tree species than Central Park in New York. It is owned by NSW Health and these buildings are leased by Sydney University, College of the Arts,
Urban sketchers came here today and had a tour by one of the Friends of Callan Park before spending a few hours sketching. I sketched at the back of the buildings today.
