    Hyde Park

    by wkcsmt Written Feb 25, 2005

    Hyde Park in the heart of Sydney, is where crowds of people gather during Sydney's outdoor festivals.

    I was fasinated with the Archibald Fountain (pictured on the left) which marks the northern end of Hyde Park. This is the work of French sculptor Francois Sicard. It depicts a bronze Apollo surrounded by other mythical figures. Horses’ heads, dolphins and tortoises exuberantly spray jets of water. It was erected in 1932 as a gift to the City of Sydney bequeathed in the will of J F Archibald. It is intended to commemorate the association between Australia and France in World War I.

    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.

    Relax a few steps from the downtown

    We walked a few blocks and found ourselves in this wonderful park just next to the downtwon district. Festivals and art displays are found here along with fountains and trees. It is a great place to relax and rest tired feet from pounding the pavement shopping nearby.

    Named after Hyde Park in London, this area was declared a park as early as 1792 and Australia’s first recorded cricket match was played here in 1804.

    Hyde Park.. A beautiful green oasis flanking the city. Nothing like a lovely stroll through this park.. especially nice after walking around the city all day.

    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.
