York Park North Tree Plantation is located in the suburb of Barton in Canberra. It is significant as one of only six plantations proposed for Canberra in the late 1920s-early 30s still remaining largely intact. The inaugural planting was carried out by HRH the Duke of York on the 10th of May, 1927 as part of the celebrations associated with the opening of the Provisional Parliament House. This place was included on the Commonwealth Heritage List in 2004.
