Centennial Park is the largest of three adjacent urban greenspaces located a few miles from downtown Sydney. The other two are Moore Park and Queen’s Park. Collectively, they comprise 890 acres and are called Centennial Parklands. In addition to several sport facilities, the Parklands feature thousands of trees, ponds, gardens, outdoor art and pavilions accessible by roadways configured in concentric circles. This Ranger’s Residence – designed by Walter Liberty Vernon in a European Arts and Crafts style – has stood on a knoll near the Robertson Road Gates since 1899.
