Forestville Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s, although population was minimal until the late 1800s. Significant development did not occur until the post-war years, with rapid growth during the 1960s and 1970s. The population increased gradually from the mid 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly medium and high density housing.
Major features of the area include Garigal National Park, Middle Harbour, The Centre (retail area), Angaphora Reserve, Casuarina Reserve, Claire Deane Bushland Sanctuary, Cook Reserve, Davidson Picnic Area, Epacris Reserve, Forestville Park, Forestville Playing Fields, Forestville War Memorial Park, Gwarra Reserve, Keagan Reserve, Lindsay Reserve, Redwood Reserve, Ryrie Reserve, the Casuarina Track and several schools.
