This place makes you glad you are in Sydney. Birds, horses, cyclists and joggers come from miles around. On a good day there are even groups picnicing. For littlies there is a children's bike track - much safer than tussling with the aggressive bike riders.

After the traffic and shopping on Oxford Street Centennial Park is perfect for a stroll, lunch in the Pavilion or a picnic. Watching classic films in the moonlight cinema is a great Summer time activity.

Spent the afternoon there with children and grandchildren. Plenty of space to run around and some good areas for the young children.

This is a great park, an oasis so close to the CBD. Usually I can park, it's good for a walk and relaxing under the trees. The cafe, playground and restaurant are great places to enjoy.

A beautiful spot to walk,picnic, feed the ducks and relax in the sun. We are very lucky to have this gem in Sydney. Just be careful of the noisy, reckless cars and cyclists in the park.
