While it may have started out as swamp land, Centennial Park is now one of Sydney’s finest and most popular outdoor spaces. The closely knit suburb offers plenty of lifestyle features for locals, with the expansive green lawns and lush historic gardens that border it taking centre stage. One of the most loved features of Centennial Park is the ever-popular Moonlight Cinema, allowing locals to watch a film underneath the stars during summer.

From cycling, running, rollerblading, team sports or horse riding, Centennial Park is fully equipped with facilities to support you. There are also plenty of BBQ facilities, although you’ll want to get there early as the park can get quite busy during beautiful, sunny weekends! Your furry friend doesn’t have to miss out either, with Centennial Park proudly boasting over 43% of its lawns as off-leash areas, with the most popular areas being Sandstone Ridge and Federation Valley.

Nearby Moore Park is home to The Entertainment Quarter, featuring local produce markets, live events, retail, cinemas, bars and restaurants.
