Home to the Darwin Cenotaph, Bicentennial Park is one of the most popular green spaces in the CBD. Its lush green surrounds overlook the harbour creating picturesque views.

It’s a popular spot for locals and tourists with a great network of shared paths for walking and cycling.

Turf Restoration Work

  • Bicentennial Park needs vital rehabilitation work in some areas.
  • The main area affected is Area 2 (see below highlighted section between Peel & Knuckey Streets) which is about ¼ of the park.
  • Increased  watering schedule has been in place for the past few weeks but further works are required.
  • Spray grass will be applied to the area (from Tuesday 9 July). Additional watering will be required to keep spray grass from drying out on many times throughout the day.
  • Fencing will protect the area.
  • Works commence next week, 8 July and are expected to take 4-6 weeks.
  • Council apologises for any inconvenience. Some events booked into area 2 have been moved to other areas in the park.
