"Veggie Patch Turned to Housing"

Ridgeway was originially developed as a market garden area. Within its borders it has substantial green areas and three reservoirs which would have served the market gardens well. However, after the 1967 fires it became a more residential area. It still however, retains the expanses of open green space within the suburb. It is a great area to raise families.
