The People of Parra Park
The descendants of Joseph Flood
In September 2008, the descendants of Joseph Flood, a convict who arrived in 1793, held a reunion in the Park to mark the 200th anniversary of his death. Joseph was buried St John's Cemetery.
Joseph had five sons, and many of their descendants travelled from around Australia to attend the reunion. It was a fitting place, close to his resting place in Parramatta.
