We went on a crowded, gorgeous Sunday after a few days of really bad weather in Sydney and the place was unbelievable! The water was actually refreshing. This place goes right at the top of the list of things to do/see in Sydney (along with the Blue Mountains and the Opera House!)

A lovely park to explore with horse riding (stables nearby), cycling and picnics in the park. There is plenty of parking and room to play sports on the grass after a meal

I regularly spend my lunch break in CP ! A great way to unwind & relax with lunch and a book. Or pick the exercise choice and walk, run , cycle , ride or play. Centennial Park has been in use for hundreds of years. Today it is formal gardens, ponds & heritage items. It contains native wildlife, cycle way... More

Interesting place to visit. Good birding. We were there on a very rainy day but were still able to enjoy the beauty of the park and walk through some of the trails.

This is a huge park! If I had stuck to the directions my phone was giving me, I would have seen much less of it. I had heard about the Labyrinth in the park, and wanted to find it. I did. It is a very nicely done one, and I did enjoy walking it. This park includes many things for... More

the day I spent in Centennial Park was raining, but I still managed 5 hours! I was mainly looking at the birds, which there were plenty. The park is well maintained and walking around the various lakes was interesting as they were all different. Lots of people from young families, to dog walkers to joggers etc etc all added to...

I have been visiting the Park for over 40Years! It is only a 15min bus ride from the City. There are dozens of activities for all ages. They have from a good indoor restaurant, to a van in the middle of the Park, which serves good food, which you can either eat at tables or take away. There is a... More
