Where is Niall Reserve?

I lived in a house supplied by the Electricity Commission in 1965 - 1966. My father was a fitter and turner - surname Deguet. I don't know the name of the street. I am certain that my neighbours surname was Hall and they had three children Elizabeth, Alan and a younger brother. They would be in their 50's now. (I think)

I can't find Niall Reserve on a map of Lae anywhere and therefore can't work out where I used to live? My parents don't remember the names of the street. You could walk out our front door into the reserve and across and down to the left hand corner was the day care centre, and a shop I think. Of course I could be completely remembering it wrong and is was a park and not Niall Reserve.

Can anyone help me with the name of the street that the Niall reserve is on please?

Niall Reserve

It was thirty years ago now, but using the map on http://www.pngbd.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11644

I belive it was on the junction of Bumbu Rd and Huon Rd. The map shows Niall Community Centre at that spot but I don't remember it. Across the road a short way was Anderson's supermarket and a few other shops, and a few streets away was Lae High School where I worked and Lae International Primary School. I guess the 3 court squash courts were on the corner of the reserve too - if not, they were close by. I should remember them as I played there very often.
