Callan Park is a 60-hectare (150-acre) heritage listed site in Lilyfield, a suburb in the Municipality of Leichhardt in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia.
The area was originally a private residence until it was purchased by the Colonial Government and transformed into a psychiatric hospital, known until 1914 as the Callan Park Hospital for the Insane, which remained in use until 1994 when it was relocated to new buildings on the site. After a period of extensive renovation, the Kirkbride Complex which housed the former hospital, is now occupied by the Sydney College of the Arts. The popular Bay Run runs through the park along the foreshore of Iron Cove.
Callan Park is located in the suburb of Lilyfield on the border with Rozelle to the east. It is situated next to Iron Cove on the northern side. The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority manages a large part of the site on behalf of Health Administration Corporation, a division of NSW Health; with the other precincts managed by the Ambulance Service of New South Wales and the Sydney Local Health District.
