Englorie Park is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Englorie Park is located 55 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Campbelltown and is part of the Macarthur region.

Englorie Park is a relatively small suburb, situated between the suburbs of Ambarvale, Campbelltown and Glen Alpine.[2] The suburb is almost entirely residential, except for a childcare centre that operates within the historic Englorie Park House. The majority of housing within the suburb is detached, with a minority of townhouses. Englorie Park is situated very close to the Macarthur Square shopping centre and Campbelltown Hospital.

History[edit]

As well as being relatively small, Englorie Park is also a relatively new suburb, having only been designated by the Geographical Names Board in March 2000. Prior to then it was part of the suburb of Campbelltown.[3] It draws its name from the historic Englorie Park House which was built in 1880 by greyhound breeder Alfred Park. Originally called Parkholme, the property was renamed Euglorie Park by Charles Burcher of Euglo Station, Condobolin. This later became corrupted to Englorie Park.[4]

The 2011 census recorded just 376 people in Englorie Park living in 158 dwellings. The majority of homes were being rented (56.6%) with 14% owned outright and 37% being purchased.
