Ginger Meggs Park
Ginger Meggs Park (33° 42′ 8″S 151° 4′ 53″E) is a few hundred metres off the Great North Walk. The park was officially named Ginger Meggs Park on 26 July 1997 in homage to the creator of the Australia’s longest-running cartoon strip: Ginger Meggs. Jimmy Bancks (1889-1952), creator of character Ginger Meggs and his friends and family, arrived in the Hornsby area in 1892. Bancks lived in this area that includes Old Mans Valley, Fishponds and Berowra Creek for over twenty years.
