If you are looking for a pleasant escape or an end to a long day of walking through the beautiful city of Sydney, why not make it in Hyde Park. As I mentioned earlier, I suggest starting in Leni Park, I also suggest ending it in Hyde Park. This park is located at a pleasant stopping point within the downtown area and it is nice enough for a lunch and some pictures of your newly tanned bodies. Here is a photo of the park's fountain.

Hydepark was founded in 1810 by govenor Macquarie and named after the park in London. Once the colony’s first racetrack and cricket pitch.
Now it is an oasis of peace in the middle of the busy citycentre witha grand avenue of trees and delightful fountains like the beautiful bronze and granite Archibald Fountain.
The 30m high Anzac Memorial in Art deco style dates from 1834 and commemorates the Australians who were killed for their country. Inside the building you will find fee exhibition covering the nine overseas conflicts in which Australians fought and many lost their lives.
Hyde Park, ANZAC War Memorial,...
Hyde Park, ANZAC War Memorial, Pool of Reflection
A park and monuments commemorating the servicemen and women involved in the various wars that Australia has participated in. Would be a great place to bring a packed lunch and relax (and reflect).
This park is a little natural refuge in the midst of city centre. It's a good quiet rest place after a long day of site seeing or what have you. It's a lovely place to sit and have a muffin whilst you're waiting for the airline offices to open :) This fountain is a bit of a central fixture in the park.
Historic Government Buildings- Macquarie Street
Macquerie Street, north of Hyde park, is the old historic center of government in Sydney. The Mint, Hospital, old parliament and state library all stand beside it next to each other.

James Hilder Reserve
We wandered upon the James Hilder reserve after having brakfast in Surry Hills. It's a nice little playground/park with plenty of trees, benches and open playing areas for children.
Hyde Park is 4-5 block long city park in the historic center of Sydney. It is most famous for its ANZAC memorial.
