Open day at Rivendell
The City of Canada Bay Heritage Society will be hosting an open day at Rivendell this month to allow people the chance to visit this magnificent historical building.
For over 120 years the building has provided support to those in need of medical care, first as the Thomas Walker Covalescent Hospital, named in honour of Thomas Walker who bequeathed funds to establish it, and since 1979 as a special facility which focuses on the psychological health of young people and their families.
The photograph shows the Thomas Walker Convalescent Hospital soon after opening in 1893. The elaborate ‘Dutch Tower’ watergate has recently been fully restored.
The open day will be held on 27 July 2014 from 9.30am to 3pm, for details contact the City of Canada Bay Heritage Society.
