A safe haven for native birds and animals. Why not take a guided tour of the park.

“Centennial Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

An interesting park in that it is very large and located near the city. A good place to go for walking and cycling, or to just sit quietly among the trees. Bikes can be hired and to see the park properly cycling is the best way.

“a nice place for a cycle or run”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

but not really all that much else, despite its large area - perhaps a picnic somewhere?

“Beautiful respite from a busy city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Centennial Park is well used by locals, and a quiet respite from city life. You can walk, cycle, horseride and picnic in this lovely park with beautiful well established trees, gardens and large duck filled ponds.
