History Croydon Park was originally used as agricultural land from the time of European settlement to well into the 1920s. The Shillabeer family owned land in the vicinity that stretched from Torrens Road to Regency Road. The land was initially used as grazing land for dairy cattle with crops such as wheat and barley also being grown there. In the late 1920s the first of the subdivisions began when AW Shillabeer sold some of his land to developers. In the late 1930s, a large part of the suburb was developed into a housing estate for returned soldiers, attracting waves of Post-war European immigration. Over time, the children of these residents largely vacated the area, leaving a relatively elderly population.
