Following the success of The Light Garden in Centennial Park, and in particular the brilliant response to the Wish Tree by visitors, the cold light of day dawned upon us the ‘morning after’…how to collect the almost 7,900 wishes?
The logistics were a challenge, but made an even greater challenge when the skies opened up and hammered Sydney for three straight days with 170mm of rain!
Here’s what happened…
Operation Wish Rescue was a success!
So, what’s next for the wishes?
We’ll be documenting each of the wishes over coming weeks for two purposes:
- to develop a creative way of making them available for us all to enjoy
- to capture those relevant wishes that will form one of the first stages of our upcoming Centennial Park Master Plan
Due to the magnificent response by you to our Wish Tree, this may take some time, so please forgive us as we wade in up to our armpits in wishes!

The Centennial Park Master Plan is an important project that we have coming up in 2013 – the 125th Anniversary year of Centennial Park. We want you to be involved in helping to shape the future of this wonderful park. Make sure you’re signed up to receive our eNewsletter so you’ll hear when work will begin on this.
