Memorials and Gates

In days gone by, statues graced the nooks and crannies of many picturesque locations of the Centennial Park as sculpture was integrated into its fabric. Reliefs on gates and memorials added an artistic and classical element to the Park and also reflected values in society.

All eight sets of entrance gates into Centennial Park were built between 1887 and 1900. With their massive carved stone pillars and ornate design, the Paddington Gates are the most imposing.

Sandstone gateways at Moore Park pre-date the gates of Centennial Park, however only the thin ornate pillars of these gates remain today.
