History

Fagan Park was originally owned by the Fagan family and operated as an orchard and cattle farm. The site was donated by the Fagan family to the Department of Lands, with Hornsby Shire Council appointed as sole trustee for the park.

The park was adopted as Council's bicentennial project and was officially opened in November, 1988.
