Australia boasts of numerous spacious parks where one can have a relaxing day. Amongst them are the Bicentennial Park, Jubilee Park and Federal Park. All three are contiguous with each other forming one humongous space of greenery and scenery.
Bicentennial Park is the northern part of these lush greenery. Southwest to it is the Federal Park; while southeast is the Jubilee Park. These parks are a perfect place for families, friends and even the loner, as they are conducive for rejuvenating one’s body, mind and soul.
The parks are bounded by the clear and calm waters of Rozelle Bay in its northern side. This bay provides the serenity that one could wish for. However, at times, the park holds an event where several people gather and fill the whole spacious ground. Events that are both enjoyable and exciting. Most of the time, it is a big playground for sports-minded individuals as well as for dog-lovers who bring with them their furry friends for a walk in the park.
At the eastern side of the park is a pathway for joggers and cyclists. It leads to a marina where numerous yachts are docked. Modern apartments and old Victorian houses lined the edge of the pathway. Apart from these, it is from this viewpoint that one can have a breathtaking panoramic look to one of Sydney’s less known bridge, the ANZAC Bridge, which was opened in 1995. Far to the east is a glance of the Sydney Tower, which is easily recognisable as it stands tall and proud amidst the skyscrapers that surround it.
In the southern side of these parks is the western residential area of Glebe. The Sydney Light Rail is best seen traversing Federal Park over a viaduct. The Glebe Tunnel is located to the east of this viaduct and seen at the Jubilee Park tram station.
A visit to such a peaceful and impressive environment is delightful and relaxing after a week of work in the busy atmosphere of the metropolis.
