  • It is a flea market is held only on Saturday. Returning plane was leaving at night, through the Park from the Opera House and walking Patin in and headed out. Besides souvenirs and put a lot of interesting things and in the so-called free market, helped put away at the end.

  • I wouldn’t specifically go out of your way to go and see it but it is a nice green area to sit and read for half an hour or so. It’s gorgeous with character with, potentially, an art installation on d...  more »

  • We hosted our engagement party here on a Sunday afternoon. The venue can not be booked, so it is completely pot luck and a bit of a gamble. We had a few randoms who's come the enjoy the park and a newly wed couple taking their wedding phones (all very standard for a gorgeous public location). If you're fine with that, this is a perfect location!!!!! We had a spectacular day, albeit 42C. Everyone loved the location. A bit of a hidden gem. There are no facilities (toilets, water, bins, etc) so you really need to plan ahead. There is a pub across the road for toilets, we brought everything in ourselves.
  • A future popular site if you ask me. Turning an old reservoir into a park instead of apartments was a great idea. It blends well with the neighbourhood and can be used for small events. A rare opportunity to see old Sydney preserved and repurposed in the right way. A bit small but could be expanded in future I hope. If you are in the Paddington area go take a look. That being said the website hypes it up a bit.
  • So pretty and chill. I hope no one ever finds out about this place. Bring a book and a coffee and forget about the world
  • Beautiful place to relax in middle of city. Best kept secret.
  • Went to an event here. There is a small lift for wheelchair access and some small water features, and some sharp drops which have fences. There didn't appear to be any water bubblers or anywhere to refill your water bottle and I couldn't locate any bathrooms, but otherwise it is a nice little location for a function (assuming there is a bathroom lurking somewhere)
