Jubilee Park/Federal Park, Glebe, Sydney NSW

Description

The first thing that strikes you when you walk into Jubilee Park/Federal Park are the birds singing a thousand melodies from their perches in the giant Moreton Bay fig trees. Colorful lorikeets nestle in nooks in the trees. A waterfront walkway leads past views of glistening blue water and the Sydney Harbor bridge in the distance framed by the closer cabled Anzac Bridge. Rozelle Bay's container terminal is the least-pretty part of the view, reminding of this area's industrial past. Dogs happily roam leash-free, while families fish at the water's edge, and joggers bounce along past rows of Canary Island palms. Lovers kiss on the benches at sunset, when the water sparkles orange-pink. A bridge leads over a canal, near the cricket fields. Kids play happily at a playground called Smith Park, under the Moreton Bay fig trees.
From Jubilee Park/ Federal Park, you have several options. You can catch the tram (light rail) back to the city center from the tram station just above the cricket fields. Or you can continue walking east to beautiful Blackwattle Bay Park with its views of the Sydney Tower and white skyscrapers. Or walk uphill on Glebe Point Rd to have a coffee and pastry at one of the bakeries, or grab some groceries at the little fruit shop before you head home. What a nice life!
