In the past, the park was used gathering firewood and grazing animals as well as a popular venue for cricket matches and children’s games. Now, the property is a famous leisure park and is steps away from popular dining, shopping and entertainment venues in Sydney, such as the State Theatre, the International Convention Centre and the wide green expanse of The Domain.
