Garrison Point near the junction of Georges River and Prospect Creek is a historically significant parkland. In 1795, Matthew Flinders, and George Bass, and the boy servant William Martin explored the Georges River to land at what is now Garrison Point and discover the what is now part of Bankstown. The area is so named because in Bankstown's early history, a garrison of soldiers was stationed here to ensure the safety of Major George Johnston as he conducted a census in the area. The park is now the local focus of annual Australia Day celebrations in the Bankstown area.
