You might not think that there's much of a difference between a park and a garden, but in truth, they’re different spaces.
Parks are all about outdoor activities and versatility – they can become whatever we need them to be, from a cricket pitch to a picnic patch. Gardens, on the other hand, offer carefully curated journies into nature. Through an artful mix of creative landscaping and fabulous flora, they have the power to transport us, be that into another culture, climate, or even a different state of mind. We’ve picked out seven of Sydney’s most beautiful gardens where we recommend you stop and smell the roses.
