Once the site of a bloody battle between Aborigines and Europeans for control of the land around Sydney, this is Australia's oldest park, gazetted in 1810 and formerly home to Sydney's first racecourse. It was virtually destroyed when dug up to make Sydney's underground railway but was restored and beautified to its current state in 1927 and ever since has offered green grass, blue sky and tinkling fountains to harried CBD workers.
Also home to the Anzac Memorial.
