When walking down Davey Street stop at the intersection with Salamanca Place where you will come to the entrance of St David's Park. The area where the park now stands has been in use since the early days of European settlement when it was used as the cemetery for Hobart Town.
In 1811 a small wooden church was built with the altar situated above the grave of David Collins. Shortly after the construction of the church it was blown down during a storm. The image below shows an artist's impression of the wooden church as it may have been. The image has been placed in the present setting of the gardens showing a possible location for the church.
plaques from burial sites in the cemetery. Many bodies are still buried in the park while some were removed to new cemeteries.
