Centennial Park occupies 220 hectares (540 acres) of the Eastern part of Sydney and offers a peaceful sanctuary in the middle of the city. Walking, feeding the swans, horseback riding, and biking are just a few of the things you can do here. There are plenty of ponds with wildlife in abundance, open fields for recreation, and a pine forest to explore. Check out the musical events. The park is surrounded by homes dating back to 1888, which is where the rich and famous of Sydney live.

  • Who would've thought that in the centre of a city as big as Sydney, there would be a park big enough to give the impression you had been transported miles into the countryside. Centennial park does ju...  read more »
  • I haven't been here for years, so one Sunday packed a picnic and took the family. How disappointing the park was dirty the smell was overpowering. The grass was dead couldn't wait to get out. 
  • Love this park it's a perfect place in the heart of Sydney. The track around the park is great for a walk or run, it's lined with Fig, Oak & Norfolk Island Pines which form a beautiful & shady passage along the way. I also use the track that is close to the outside fence & head inland around the lakes for a more challenging outing. The new cafe is well placed for a cuppa & a bite to eat & compliments the other 2 cafes in the park. You can train, have a bbq or just chill in a park that is just one of Sydney's many attractions.
  • Messy, overpopulated and narky park rangers. I ran a mobile bicycle repair for a while where I ride to people who've had mechanical problems during rides and fix said problems. Rangers came within 5 minutes of setting up a repair stand for a stranded customer and started making threats before they even informed me I wasn't allowed to work on park grounds. Pretty disgusting.
  • Beautiful playground the one at the Parkes Drive, it has 4 swings for toddler & 4 swings for big kids it's good for small & their siblings or big kids, it has toilet and also there's a barbecue facilities, the only thing is you only can park your car for 3 hours here and the parking ranger from the centennial park patrolling around, and it's fenced Great for riding your scooter and bicycle and jogging. Best park and playground in the city of sydney
  • What a great park! Huge places to play ball, make a bbq, cycle, enjoy a nice coffee, great views, picnic, you name it! A must go!
  • There so something for everyone here. A fantastic resource for a large city. Excellent facilities and varied parklands. The whole outer portion is leash free too which is great for dog owners.
