Hyde Park is a forty acre public greenspace in central Sydney. After it was founded in 1810, the country’s oldest park was an entertainment venue for cricket, boxing, rugby and horse racing. At the southern end adjacent to the Pool of Reflection is the ANZAC War Memorial. The Art Deco tribute to the World War I Australian Army was designed by Bruce Dellit and built in 1934. Rayner Hoff created the statuary and friezes. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The national day of observance is April 25.
