    Aboriginal culture

    There are two traditional custodians of the Chipping Norton Lake area – the Tharawal people, which inhabited the southern side of the Georges River, and the Darug people to the north and west of the River.

    White settlement

    Thomas Moore was granted waterfront land that is now part of the park. 'The Homestead' within the reserve grounds was built in the 1880s. The town was named for Chipping Norton in England.

    Chipping Norton Post Office opened on 1 September 1920 and closed in 1974.[2]

    As farming activities declined, the rich topsoil and underlying sand was mined. After 20 years of mining, the riverbanks were packed with dangerous pits and eroded banks. In 1977 the Chipping Norton Lakes Authority was set up to rehabilitate the area into parkland.
