Grigg Park

Grigg Park is next to Grigg Place, which was named after Cr Albert Grigg (but is not a 'place' - in the sense of a piazza or square) and so therefore also bears his name. Lynch St is on the other side: he was a councillor also. Snook (of Snook Crescent) was shot in the Town Hall.

It's possible that the park was thought of as a 'place' in the sense of square (piazza, Platz), and that it was named for the councillor first, and the street name followed from that.
