Centennial Parklands

Centennial Parklands

This sprawling green space is actually three parks—Centennial, Moore, and Queens—and lies at the intersection of numerous suburbs in the city’s east. Among its highlights are horse-riding trails, huge sporting fields, running tracks, a trapeze school (in the warm-weather months), and small lakes for picnickers who want a pretty view. It’s easy to fritter away a gorgeous day here.
