The Mud Map shows the sites of Westlake Cottages in the Gap - now part of Stirling Park, Yarralumla. It also marks some of the sites on Stirling Ridge in Stirling Park which includes one of the Ngunawal Scarred Trees. The sites will be GPS marked this year. Apologies to Karen William's whose name has been spelt with two 'R's. Not marked on this map is Vlad Bondarenko's tree which was at the rear of 22 Westlake. This tree was also remembered by Stan Brill whose family were the first to live in No 22 Westlake. Both are deceased. The ashes of a number of people have been scattered in the park. It is still remembered as 'home'.
The quality of these maps is not good, but gives an idea of the position of Stirling Park in relation to the centre of the city and in relation to Capital Hill. Constitution Avenue not built is marked on the map. The decision not to construct this road was made in the late 1970s and today another undeveloped road that connects Empire Circuit to Marina Place has been planned.
