“A calm oasis in the city centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

The previous reviewers have got it about right so I'll just add my vote of approval. It does just what a park should, providing a relatively green and peaceful space in the city. It's good to walk around (you can see ANZAC memorial and the Captain Cook statue) or just sit and watch the people and birds. It is also very close to the Australia Museum, St.Mary's Cathedral and the Aquatic Centre. Very good to relax a little whilst doing the city.

“A spot of serenity within the busy city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney's CBD, Hyde Park offers a calm and beautiful space to relax, think, read, or picnic. On weekdays, you can see many people taking a lunch break in the park. On weekends, there is often a festival of some sort happening. Make sure to check it out in the evening as well when the fountains are backlit making a beautiful sight.

“Pleasant not-quite-central park of no great note”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Taking up two long blocks on the eastern side of the CBD, this well-kept park creates no negative feelings (unless you object to the commemoration of war at the memorial at the southern end); but there is not much positive to say either. Don't go out of your way to see it, but by all means stroll through if you are otherwise in the area.
