This park is close to various museums and two train stations. The Anzac Memorial and the Pool of Reflection is a nice place to have lunch in. There's a giant chess board where people just sit down and play with estrangers.

Quiet Park in the city, with 2 stations at the corners. It's a simple small park with some quaint familiarities... Giant Chess Board - check, Water Fountain - check, War memorial - check, Cafes - check... lots of old school charm with period buildings and modern skyscrapers in every view.

Right near the CBD of Sydney this large parkland area is the perfect place for a relaxing snack, to lay about on the grass reading a book or to check out the various sculptures within it.

In fact even if such parks are not your thing then you'll probably find yourself traversing this park and enjoying the shade afforded by its massive trees. That's because it effectively contains the underground train stations of St James and Museum, is right next to St Marys Cathedral and the Australian Museum, is on the way from the CBD to the nightlife area of Kings Cross, contains the ANZAC Memorial and is also right next to the Hyde Park Barracks Museum.

So if you are heading on foot to any of these attractions don't forget to stop and smell the roses. Figuratively if nothing else.

A beautiful park. We really enjoyed strolling through Hyde Park. The fountain was pretty. We watched a game of ground chess which was very interesting and entertaining. There was a musician singing for tips that added to the atmosphere. The Anzac Memorial is also in Hyde Park.

Hyde Park is a great place to relax. If you want to read books, have your lunch / snacks sitting under tree, play with kids, this is the place. It has got few attractions in park itself i.e. Barracks Museum, fountain, Art Gallery of NSW etc.
