Memorials and gates

Landscaped in the Picturesque style popular during the Victorian-era, Centennial Park's gates and memorials bring classical design features to the entrances of the Park.

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 Park's Paddington Gates are its most imposing.

The Sandstone gateways at Moore Park pre-date Centennial Park's Paddington Gates by 20 years, however only the thin ornate pillars of these gates remain today.
