Parramatta is named from an Aboriginal word meaning "the place where eels lie down".
Parramatta Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1788, with land used mainly for farming. The township was established in 1790, developing as the commercial centre of the City. Growth took place from the 1880s into the early 1900s. The most significant development occurred during the post-war years, when many medium and high density dwellings were constructed. The population increased substantially from the early 1990s as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area, particularly from urban renewal. Population growth is expected to continue, due to several major developments.
Major features of the area include the Parramatta CBD, Westfield Parramatta Shopping Centre, University of Western Sydney (Parramatta Campus), Parramatta Swimming Centre, Parramatta Community Health Services, Parramatta Heritage Centre, Parramatta Riverside Theatres, Gatehouse Art Gallery, Old Government House, Parramatta Town Hall, Lancer Barracks (Linden Military Museum), Parramatta Park, Pirtek Stadium (Parramatta Stadium), Parramatta Leagues Club, Parramatta RSL Club, the Parramatta River, Parramatta River Walk, Hambledon Cottage, Bill Thompson Reserve, Collett Park, David Frater Reserve, Foveaux Park, James Ruse Reserve, John Irving Park, Jubilee Park, Mays Hill Reserve, Noller Park, Old Kings Oval, Ollie Webb Reserve, Parramatta Skate Park, Prince Alfred Park, Robin Thomas Reserve, Swann Reserve, The Park, W R Musto Playground, the Parramatta railway station, Parramatta Wharf, the Parramatta River Ferry, Macarthur Girls High School and numerous other schools.
