The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.

Still gets a lot of crazies but otherwise it's a nice clean park in the middle of Darlinghurst, popular with hospital staff and with a few monuments.

located near vinnies hospital, in darlo, is this lovely green leafy space, plenty of seating to be had or just sitting on the grass on a sunny day, the rotunda is the centre piece, easy to imagine, big bands entertaining the locals in times gone by.

Green Park is a pleasant patch of green with some large green trees on Darlinghurst Road in Darlinghurst and close to the old jail over the road. Alexander Green arrived at the nearby goal in 1824 and became the assistant hangman in 1828. Green was moved from the jail in 1841 and lived in a white-washed hut in what was known as Greens Park until it was burnt to the ground and it was back the the jail. Despite the association with Green the convict, who hanged over 400 people and went insane and was released the park was named after an Alderman Green, who was not a convict and no relation to the hangman.It is still a pleasant patch of green in Darlinghurst.

This park is small, but it has some amazing trees. Lots of people like to come here for a reprieve of the heat. Many lay down on the grass, either to read, watch, or sleep.

It has also a lovely gazebo.

I enjoyed the shade on this hot day. Next was to visit the Sydney’s Jewish Museum.

Enjoy the shade in this park,

We sat and took in the local scenery for about half an hour here. There were plenty of benches and shade which was nice. Lots of people coming and going and just enjoying a beautiful afternoon.

My return visit to this part of inner-Sydney was on a rainy winter's day. I was at the bus stop alongside the park and wanted to use the shelter structure. The seat was occupied by three apparently homeless men so I stood. When two older women came along to wait for the bus, the three gave up the seat to them and headed off. I don't know where else they were able to find shelter. Quite a few needy people live in and around Green Park, and a couple of times a day a charity-run food van stops beside the park to hand out food.

If you're in the inner suburbs of Darlinghurst, Paddington or Kings Cross you may like to pause in Green Park, which stretches between Darlinghurst Road and Burton and Victoria Streets near St Vincents Hospital. The park dates from the colonial era, starting off as public land at the rear of the Darlinghurst gaol and courthouse in the early 1840s. In 1875 it was formally established as a public recreation ground. The park's bandstand is used as a café these days. And there are two interesting and sad monuments. On the Darlinghurst Rd boundary you'll see a pink triangle with black poles. It commemorates the gay men and lesbian women who've suffered and lost their lives, particularly during the Holocaust. At the Burton-Victoria corner you'll see an ornate old drinking fountain and alongside it is a modern engraved panel in memory of Victor Chang, a well-regarded cardiac surgeon who was killed in 1991.
