It is enormous and I always feel scared I'll get lost. Even though there is a ring road. The app is hopeless. It is filled with people excercising. Once you get out of the idea of a pleasant passengata and break into a pathetic jog you hit he intense energy of other park goers. Otherwise you fell people whooshing past... More

This park is such a great place to take the family for a bbq, or to just relax with your book. We had a friends birthday bbq in the park, and it was so lovely, there is plenty of room to setup, and the parking and access is so easy. BTW- the running track is amazing

We diverted on the way home late afternoon and very glad we did so. The space is sublime, open vistas, lakes, wildlife and majestic trees. We would have spent longer but for having to get home. Would definitely visit again, just for the peace and tranquility.

We love going here. We sometimes take our bikes or walk and look at birds. It's fairly flat and good for biking but it's also a pretty place to walk and the lake is great At times there are many birds such as avocet on the wetlands and there is also a hide

It is a 3.8 km circumference walk along the Grand Drive. If you are lucky you can spot black swans in the duck pond and the cocktaoos hanging about. There are different eating spots around the park. The cafe at the children's playground has slightly cheaper food than the Harvest café at the main café. There is an outside takeaway... More

We cycle here, run, walk, picnic, coffee, eat at the cafe or just hang out. You can hire individual, tandem bikes and family bikes. They also have acrobatics and gymnastics on certain days. There is also horse riding and the events. Close to the city and feels like a break :)

We had such a lovely afternoon in this park - we fed the ducks and the other strange little birds - it was hilarious! The White ducks are huge and friendly! adorable!

Visited in December 2012 while in Sydney. We came here to watch a movie in the park. We rented the bean bag chairs and enjoyed with many others of sitting out under the starry night watching a movie on a huge screen. Nice to walk and do other activities in the day time. We got a little lost trying to... More

This playground is located conveniently within the Learners Cycleway near the southern edge of Centennial Park (see map). The Centential Park in Sydney features a special place for everyone... incliding three playgrounds, all located near the parking and public transport. Open all year round. There are toilets, large shaded areas and park benches. It also has a cycleway ideal for... More
