A great city oasis


Victoria Park is sandwiched between The University of Sydney, and the vibrant and culture-rich neighbourhoods of Glebe, Newtown and Chippendale. It's proximity to the city centre makes it a bit of an urban oasis - allowing a quick escape from the CBD, and the sounds of nearby traffic. It is also a ten minute walk from Central Station, making it easily accessible from all Sydney neighbourhoods.

A great place to unwind and relax in


Though it isn't rich in beautiful botany, it provides the perfect leafy backdrop for an afternoon picnic. The centrepiece is a picturesque wooden bridge across a small pond - a great spot for bird watching. The park isn't very busy, so Inner West Sydneysiders can enjoy some nearby tranquility.

A great walkway


There's no need to lug picnic essentials from home either. Coles in Broadway Shopping Centre is a five minute walk away.

Right near Sydney Uni and Broadway Shopping Centre


In terms of amenities, the park has a small playground and basketball court, as well as an outdoor swimming pool.

Great for picnics too


Though it isn't one of Sydney's most stunning spots, Victoria Park does have a great view of the city's tall office buildings towering above the trees that border the park. It gives inner city folks a relaxing spot to spend a sunny day.
