Bankstown Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s. Land was used mainly for timber-getting, farming and market gardening. Population was minimal until the late 1800s, with growth through to the early 1900s, spurred by the construction of railway lines. Rapid expansion took place during the 1920s and early 1930s. Significant development occurred during the immediate post-war years. Substantial growth took place from the early 1990s, with the population doubling between 1991 and 2011, a result of large numbers of new dwellings being added to the area. Growth in recent years has largely been from infill (medium and high density housing) and town centre development.
Major features of the area include the Bankstown CBD, Bankstown Central Shopping Centre, TAFE NSW South Western Sydney Institute (Bankstown College), Bankstown Arts Centre, Council offices (Bankstown Customer Service Centre), Bankstown City Gardens (Memorial Park), Bankstown Sporting Hall of Fame, Alice Reserve, Archer Crescent Park, Court House Reserve, Griffith Park, McLeod Reserve and Friendship Gardens, Paul Keating Park, R M Campbell Park, Rotary International Garden, the Bankstown railway station and numerous schools.
