Central Park belongs to a close-knit community of professionals, families, students, artists, designers and entrepreneurs. Chippendale itself is a mecca for art, design and culture, and is popular with young families, students, small business owners and fashionistas. Its cobbled laneways are peppered with stylish galleries, cafes and delicatessens, which are a major drawcard for locals who have flocked into the area over the past decade.
Bordered by Broadway to the north, Cleveland Street to the South, Central Station to the East, and the University of Sydney to the East, Central Park is located in Chippendale, which is a fabulous place to discover on foot thanks to its enviable location at the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
Not only does Chippendale lie a short distance from Chinatown and Darling Harbour, but it’s also a stone’s throw from Sydney’s mid-town bustling business district. Uptown, the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House are less than 10 minutes away by train, where ferries also connect the city to picturesque Balmain, Kirribilli and Manly.
Within Central Park, on Kensington Street, Sydney architects Tonkin Zulaikher Greer have created a new destination for cafes, galleries, weekend markets and organic food co-operatives. Central Park’s spacious green parks and gardens also provide a tranquil haven for the entire city to enjoy.
