Like the previous reserve, Raines, Rain’s or Raines Reserve, this nearby Reserve has also suffered from spelling aberrations. It appears these days in Melways and Google as “Mayors” Park. But in the 1897 MMBW map it appears as Mayor’s and for some reason I had always thought as it was celebrating Mayors of Collingwood that it would be Mayors’ but maybe it was meant to celebrate the Mayor of the day only. The Park appears in the 1869 de Gruchy map as Mayor’s Park and appears always to have been allocated as a reserve.
