Here's a fun fact - did you know that Hyde Park is the OLDEST park in the entire country? Now THAT is something to be impressed about!
Hyde Park is also the most well known, and one of the most popular for people to visit when in Sydney. The park is spread over 16 hectares, right in the heart of Sydney - so if you need that welcome break when out and about, it's the perfect spot!
There is plenty of lush grass for the kids to play in, and plenty of spots for those relaxing picnics. Given that hot Sydney sun, it's great that Hyde Park also has plenty of big, leafy trees for that cool shade.
It's fun for the kids to wander round and check out all of the monuments that can be found around the city too. Don't forget to check out the iconic fountain too, with it's ancient mythology all around it!
If you love history, then head on down to the south of the park, where there is the Anzac Memorial and the popular Pool of Reflection. There are other monuments and statues there too, and it's a great way to introduce kids to the history too!
Make sure you check out all the festivals that the park holds too, like the very big Sydney Festival - kids love these and they are very family friendly!
So have that break during your city trip, and head to the little oasis of Sydney!
There is a cafe in the park if you need that coffee or tea, and even some treats for the kids!
