Oatley Pleasure Grounds is a bush park located in Oatley, New South Wales. The whole park is 3.4 hectares (34,000 m2).

History

The park was started by Harry Linmark sometime before 1934. A band, weekly on Sunday, previously held entertaining shows at the park. Chinese New Year celebrations and picnics hosted by the Salvation Army were held in the park. A zoo was constructed in the park which held animals, such as kangaroos, monkeys, snakes and emus. Around the same period a wine bar was also constructed, but it was noisy and received complaints. Later in 1934, Kogarah Council purchased the park, extended it and renamed it.
