Centennial Park is an exceptional and exclusive suburb and those fortunate enough to call it home live next to Sydney’s most beautiful and biggest park. This large public urban park occupies more than 220 hectares of greenery and is 4km to the CBD. It’s popular for a host of recreational pursuits – bike riding, rollerblading, horse riding, running, walking and children playing in the newly revamped playgrounds. For many decades it has also been the place to go for a weekend family picnic and to feed the ducks.
The suburb developed as a result of a decision to sell off land adjacent to the park to raise money for the park development. It’s a small suburb, only made up of a handful of streets surrounding the western side of the park. On these streets you will find quality houses on extremely large blocks, many with park views, stunning gardens and original period features – the most distinguished along the exclusive Lang Road and Robertson Place. There is also some large contemporary apartment buildings, affordable studios and older-style boutique apartments blocks.
It’s conveniently located to a number of public and private schools in surrounding suburbs of Moore Park, Randwick, Queens Park, Paddington and Woollahra. Also nearby is the recently redeveloped Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park, just footsteps from the park. This family friendly entertainment precinct features many specialty shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, two cinemas, children’s playgrounds, live entertainment venues and regular farmers markets.
If you are lucky enough to live in this verdant and peaceful suburb you enjoy absolute convenience, a choice of excellent local eateries, world-class entertainment and recreational activities.
