Sydney you are so lucky

This park is amazing. Acres and acres of grass, runner, horse rides, soccer, cricket, picnics, coffee, lakes ... just brilliant. Easy walk from the city too.

Whether you're having a picnic, going for a walk, or utilising one of the many activities in the park, you will feel serene in the park grounds. On my last visit my dad and I went horse riding, it was awesome.

Wide choice of open spaces, great for big groups, birthday parties, etc. Horse riding, bike hire and various educational and fun activities available for... More

Paper bark swamp. At least I think that is the name of the amazing section of this very nice park that we visited. Flying foxes (bats) live here in droves, not everyone likes bats, but we do, and we thought it was amazing.

The park is clean, it has... More

A lot of grass, fig trees, bird life, and bats. One of my favourite places to run in the evening. Bbqs for public use. Couple cafes and bike hire. Please don't feed the animals as it is unhealthy, and makes them aggressive.

For a peaceful family day out, picnic or just a stroll along the paths under the trees this is the place to go. Numerous activities, from walking, jogging, bike rides and horse rides are done at the park, even a dog show on the day we visited. Sports fields are everywhere with rugby and football being played on a Sunday... More

The Centennial Park is a huge place and is good for family outings. There are lanes for bicycle riding or just hiking, picnics or birdwatching. Lots of birds by the pond, adequate parking and clean restrooms. Good for individuals who just want to relax and read a book. So huge, you can find your own quiet spot.
