Centennial Park’s history is unlike any other landmark in Sydney. Previously a catchment of creeks and swamps and home to the Gadi people, to a grazing and timber clearing area in 1811, it wasn’t officially declared as a public open space until 1888. Along with Moore Park and Queens Park, it is now the largest of the three that make up Centennial Parklands. Over 100 years later, Centennial Park is now known as a beautiful recreation area, home to an abundance of flora and fauna. It’s a favourite among adults and children, and is one of a few inner city parks to offer horse riding facilities.
As Centennial Park is approximately 3km from Avonmore on the Park, it is best getting here via taxi or public transport. If you choose to catch public transport, you can catch the 372 or 373 bus from Belmore Rd near Alison Rd, or the 374 bus from Alison Rd near Belmore Rd. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
