History/Origin Named after Mr. Lyle Mason Tivendale who arrived in Darwin about 1925 as Assistant to the Chief Veterinary Officer of the Northern Territory (Inspector of Slaughter Houses). He departed on retirement from the position of Commonwealth Health Inspector.

Mr Tivendale attended the local Chinese School to learn Chinese in order to assist him in the carrying out of his duties. He was the instigator of the plan to convert swamp between Gilruth Avenue and Mindil Beach to parkland.

In 2011, due to the realignment of the Tivendale Road and Wishart Road intersection, Tivendale Road was revoked and renamed. The southern section of Tivendale Road was renamed Syrimi Road.
