Went to this park on our way to DFO and had a lovely lunch. There were families hiring bikes and playing without a care. Great to see such happiness and the park helps provide a smile. If exercise is not your thing just sit back,...More

Centennial Park is quite beautiful - a must to take your overseas visitors - a perfect place to people watch - let the children run around

While it's not as big as New York's Central Park, few could argue Sydney's Centennial Park is not as prettier. What a great place to spend a day or three with family and friends. Like Central Park, the food options aren't the best. Coffees are...More

Black swan! Huge bat! Open area for kids to run and relax your mind. Making sure you buy a full bag of bread before you get there. I saw all kind birds, but the black swans are really pretty! Can I feed them? My kids...More

Such a nice and calm place. Great for relaxing, jogging or having just a walk. There is also a place where you will see flying foxes and the water bodies also has quite a few birds and fish species.

So I love this Park as it's a local park however I recently enquired about this destination for a wedding ceremony. Few months down the road, Easy Weddings has contacted me to leave reviews for Centennial Park and other suppliers I have used. Very annoying.

Hi Nicole L, Thank you for the great review! We couldn't agree more about picnics in the Park. Next time you visit, why not try a horse or pony ride?

After being around for over a hundred years the park gets better and better . A green Oasis in the city (despite the attempts of the State government and the abysmal Light Rail project). The park offers great walking .cycling , restaurants, coffee and horse...More

Hi steve r, Thank you for the kind review. Centennial Parklands is often referred to as the 'lungs of Sydney'. Next time you visit, why not check out our bat colony in Lachlan Swamp?

Typical park. Nice place for a walk or morning run. It's not that busy and not too small. Generally ok. I live close but I wouldn't go there from the other part of the city just to see it.

No.. you can catch bus (380, 333 , 40 or 440). Takes about 10-15 mins. Hope this helps.
