We usually go to Centennial Park to do laps on our bikes--being mostly flat, it's perfect for all experience levels. We went more recently to take family photos.

Hi MMCSyndey, Thanks for your great review. We're happy to hear you all enjoyed your visit. You might be interested to know that we have 5 cygnets (baby swans) swimming around the ponds at the moment. They're very cute and children really enjoy seeing them. Hope to see you soon. - Centennial Parklands More

This is my "home park" and I love going there to relax or exercise. It is huge and quite diverse, with lots of wildlife. Not sure if it is worth time as a tourist destination although at sunset you often get to see large flocks of cockatoos and if you're lucky they may even come have a look at whether... More

Admittedly, none of the parks in the North quite seem to measure up to this one. Great for all ages.

I grew up riding horses in the park. Now it is crowded and not as pleasant. The cafe is expensive and crowded, the open land is often used for festivals and the Randwick has lost a lot of lovely land to make way for light rail. Still it is still a wonderful open area in a crowded part of Sydney.

Being a photographer I love the park for all of its Flora & Fauna ... see my photo's on Instagram @mudeeman (scroll past the recent South Africa photos LOL) if you are interested. But there is so much more that Centennial Park has to offer. The park is worth a visit no matter where you live in Sydney. Highly recommend... More

Wide open spaces, awesome trees, blooming flowers, multiple lakes full of bird life, historic sites, statues, sporting fields, flat & cross country tracks, horse riding, cafes, kids play areas, moonlight cinema, tours & more. It's a special park, a space that Sydney loves & a perfect spot for all to enjoy.

Centennial Park is a gem, well a giant gem. A true park for people of all ages. There is space for walkers well separated from bike riders, there is space for horse riders too on their horses. There is car parking without nasty parking meters. There are trees, ducks, swans, water fowl in abundance, garden vistas, ponds, no loud music... More

so close to the city center you can reach this wonderful park by bus or rather a walk...there seem to be less trees this time about but that could just be me...worth the visit

Walking around the park is one of the great joys of living in Sydney. Most people do it in a clockwise direction but anticlockwise is perfectly acceptable as well. Great in all seasons. Agreat way formvisitors to clear the cobwebs
