The history of Centennial Park is incredible. A story of struggle, politics, drought, determination, intrigue, near ruin and then a phoenix-like rise to become one of the world’s best urban parks.

It’s all told in our new book: “The People’s Park: Centennial Park – A History”.

A 192-page beautifully-presented book with some of the most stunning Park images you’ve seen is now available to purchase from:

From next year you may see this book in your favourite bookshop, but this year you can only get your copy from us direct!

 

A great read for you. A great gift for your family member or friend!
