  • Awesome big park in the middle if the city. Very safe to walk the dogs with a huge off leash field and many other on leash walking places. Lots of birds to see and quite often I see masses of white cockatoos flying around. Also have a look up in the dense trees and during the day you can see thousands of bats nesting and if your lucky also spot the odd sleeping possum! Beautiful garden areas great for family picnics and several playing fields also. Also there are bikes to hire and even a pond for the model boat enthusiasts.
  • Centennial Park is a wonderful place to visit for walks, picnics, bike rides, or just a slow drive around the Grand Circle road to see one of Sydney's oldest parks. Numerous places for coffee and meals, as well as simple fare. Bike and Tricycle Hire available.
  • A circular road around the periphery with a dedicated & very popular cycle lane. A couple not roads lead into this large parkland. Lots of birdlife, a bat colony and a few old world buildings & formal gardens. Lots of sports fields, 2 or 3 cafes. Popular for a day of picnics
  • Lots of space, unspoilt grassy areas, ponds with birds, fish and turtles and so many beautiful trees. Playgrounds, BBQs, cafe, free parking across the park. Great Australian outdoor. Might be quite busy on sunny weekends and public holidays, if you are driving and going to use a public BBQ. It is always possible to find a quiet spot otherwise.
  • If on foot be ready to stroll along, plenty to see such as horses, ducks, ponds and people just doing their thing. Great shady areas for picnics and a large dedicated kid friendly recreation/picnic area with play equip and bike track. *****Worth a look you can drive through and/or park all for free and make a decision if your unsure.
