A park commemorates Alderman A. H. Collett who was a former Mayor of Parramatta.

There was a fairly large gathering at Collett Park when the Governor unveiled a stone pillar and tablet erected to the memory of the late Mayor Arther Collett, whose name the park bears. Sir Philip met the sons and daughters of the deceased, and told them that he was sure that the memorial was well-earned and that they should feel consoled in their loss by the knowledge that their father was held in such high esteem.  At this ceremony a lady presented his Excellency with a bouquet for Lady Game, and was told that as the latter was up in Queensland at the time the flowers would be given to his little daughter Rosemary.
