While it may be home to cricket today, Morse Park had quite an history during the first fifty years of the 20th century.
That, and much more, will be explored in David Bullock's tour titled "Lower Havannah Street: Its History and Its People" on Sunday, April 21.
The tour will start at 11am, getting underway at the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre. It will people around Morse Park, the Macquarie River, Havannah Street and Durham Street.
"The land where Morse Park actually use to an experimental farm, growing vegetables and tobacco, from about 1900 to 1950," he said.
"It was run by the Bathurst Agricultural Station, but they ended up giving it to the council, who ended up turning it into a place for recreational activities.
"Before the farms, people would come to town and build shanties on the land to live, before they moved on."
From Morse Park, Mr Bullock will take his tour to Macquarie River, where he look at the famous people that lived by the river, while talking about the three bridges - the original one that was swept away by a flood in 1857, Denison Bridge and the new Evans Bridge.
From there, he'll bring his tour back over the Great Western Highway to lower Havannah Street.
Mr Bullock is all too familiar with the area, having grown up in Durham Street, learning the history of the area from his grandfather, as well as reading up on it.
