Margaret Timpson Park

Margaret Timpson Town Park is a small one hectare park located in the heart of Belconnen Town Centre, opposite the Belconnen Mall along Benjamin Way. The park is a popular place to walk through and to rest for a while, and can also be used for large gatherings of people. It has picnic tables and public toilets are available at the nearby Belconnen Public Library.

Margaret Timpson Park is an ideal retreat in the middle of the Belconnen business district. Its formal design includes Canary Island date palms and the ‘Tumbling Cubes’ sculpture by Bert Flugelman.

The park commemorates Margaret Timpson for her advocacy for women, and her impressive achievements in improving the status of women, both in the Australian Capital Territory and nationally. 

Her particular areas of interest included women’s health, women’s participation in sport and education for girls, as well providing more opportunities generally for women to achieve their full potential.
