One of Sydney’s most beloved public spaces, Prince Alfred Park has undergone a $9 million facelift.
The 7.5 hectare park offers plenty of green space and benches to sit and relax. New barbeque and picnic areas have been built with custom-designed tables and seating. There’s an off-leash area for your dog too.
Practise your stroke on 1 of the 5 tennis courts made of the same material used at the Australian Open. Basketball players can shoot some hoops in 2 new courts and an extra half-court, if they can tear their eyes away from the stunning Sydney skyline. Fitness stations can be found throughout the park.
Kids will adore the new playground and themed play area.
The upgrade to Prince Alfred Park Pool is almost complete and it will re-open in early 2013. There has been $18 million invested in the project, which will see new temperature-controlled pools and shaded landscaped spots.
It couldn’t be easier getting to the park. It is adjacent to Central train station and many bus services stop nearby. Look for buses that travel along Chalmers, Elizabeth or Cleveland Streets. Sections of the park are accessible but it does contain some steep hills.
