Hyde Park – Sydney

Hyde Park – Sydney

Amid all the din of the central business district, Hyde Park is a sanctuary of sprawling lawns, shady picnic spots, flowers, fountains, and fig trees. Like a mini Central Park, this welcome patch of green, named after Hyde Park in London, offers prime people-watching – especially at lunch when city workers come here to kick off their shoes. The park’s bronze Archibald Fountain (1932) commemorates Australia’s alliance with France during WWI, while the art deco Anzac War Memorial (1934), in the southern half of the park, honors its victims. At the north end of Hyde Park, in Queens Square, are three fine Georgian buildings, masterpieces of the convict architect Sir Francis Greenway: the Hyde Park Barracks, St James’ Church, and the Supreme Court. Built by convict labor in 1817-19, Hyde Park Barracks was restored to its original condition in 1975-84 and now houses a museum on the history of Sydney portraying the lives of the first involuntary ‘settlers’. On the east side of Hyde Park is the Australian Museum with the largest natural history collection in the country.
