A park for all season! This was the place to be amidst the summer heat today! The fountain sparkled in the sunlight and a lush atmosphere permeated the surroundings!

My wife and I enjoyed a walk through the park featuring a central fountain and various statues. Lots of people sitting on the grass enjoying a peaceful environment. Not very many weirdo's.

We walked the walk through Hyde Park several times while visiting Sydney over a several day period. Each time it was a new adventure with new sights and people to encounter.

I used to walk through London's Hyde Park daily ... Sydney's is a whole lot better! Quiet and peaceful and well maintained.

The tree canopy makes you appreciate the critical importance of parks in cities. On a very hot day the cool of this urban forest will recharge your batteries. War memorial at one end (also a great visit), Sydney CBD/Westfield Mall on the west side, St....More

This is a magnificent green park, which provides a tranquil break from the hectic streets of the city. The park hosts festivals and is perfect for a picnic break when the weather permits.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
