Werrington Park was established by the NSW Child Welfare Department in 1954.  It was located at Werrington, near St Marys.  Originally, it was a home for boys defined as “ïntellectually disabled”.  They were taught farming and basic life skills.

The Home initially accomodated 12 boys, by the 1970’s it accomodated 120 boys.  In 1978 Cobham Children’s Court and Remand Centre were built on the corner of the estate.  When Taldree closed in 1980 the boys were sent to Werrington Park.

In 1988 Werrington Park closed and is now part of the University of Western Sydney.
