Regardless if you are on your lunch break and need that quiet spot to enjoy your lunch in the great outdoors or if you need a place to keep the kids busy on a hot day, it is a pleasant small triangular park to get away right in the city.
The kids will love the fountain and of course you can even have a little run around yourself under the fountain to cool off on a hot day.
For a little history about the gardens, the garden was designed by William Guilfoyle with a European Style which compliments the surrounding buildings. In 1890 Sir Henry Parkes planted The Federal Oak which can found in the gardens along with the plaque commemorating Vida Goldstein's election to Parliament.
There is also a memorial in bronze to Pastor Sir Douglas and Lady Gladys, two of Australia's most prominent Indigenous leaders and traditional owners.
The gardens are certainly worth a visit, as they offer peace and quiet with the sounds of the water cascading in the background as you relax.
