Love the Park, Share the Park!

Centennial Parklands is one of Australia’s largest and most popular public park spaces, hosting more than 20 million visits every year. There are some simple things you can do when you visit the Parklands to make sure this special place remains safe, accessible and enjoyable for all!

Here's how you can Share the Park

Whether you visit the Parklands as pedestrian, cyclist, dog walker, horse rider or a motorist, you can do some things to help us Share the Park:

  • Look both ways for bikes and cars before crossing the road and always use pedestrian crossings when they are provided.
  • If you walk or jog with headphones in your ears, take care before stepping out onto any roadway.
  • Respect the horse tracks and entrance ways, especially at Robertson Road Gate.
  • Follow the 30 km/h speed limit in Centennial Park.
  • Avoid riding in groups which encourages speeding and makes it difficult to stop at intersections and look out for other Park users.
  • Stay in the dedicated cycle lane on Grand Drive - do not cut corners or veer into the car lane.
  • Pick up your dog’s poo and put it in the bin.
  • Know where on-leash areas in Centennial Park are, for example inside Grand Drive is all on-leash areas. Refer to the Parklands dog brochure or download our app for more information.
  • A single person can have a maximum of four dogs under control at any time - this is not just our rule, it's NSW State Law.
  • Take care when crossing all roads, especially entering and exiting Centennial Park at Robertson Road Gates.
  • Riders on the Centennial Park horse track must slow to a walk when passing other horses.
  • Equestrian riders must also abide by the Code of Conduct.
  • Slow down - the speed limit is 30 km/h in Centennial Park for all vehicles.
  • Stay in the car lane and look out for other Park users.
  • Check your blind spot for cyclists before turning across the cycle lane.

Together let’s make of the Parklands a wonderful place to enjoy.

Care for our green space

Sharing the Park also means leaving no trace. Whether you’re on the go, at a picnic site or at one of our food outlets please pick up your rubbish and dispose of it thoughtfully. By being considerate of other visitors and the Parklands wildlife, we preserve the beauty of our green space.

Remember if you don’t pick it up, someone else will!

Kick start the school holidays with an a-MAZE-ing free activity!

Horses are this year’s hero of our annual Share the Park campaign and to highlight their presence in Centennial Park we have set up a temporary hay bale maze for you and your friends to navigate through.

The maze has only one way in and the same way out, the aim is to reach the centre!  If the kids are looking for an added twist, we have a free activity sheet that includes clues and puzzles with answers hidden in the maze itself.  It’s a great way to get everyone outdoors and learn more about the park. You can pick up the activity sheet from the park ranger on site or from our visitor information centre.
