Further information

I spend a lot of time in Centennial Park, mainly early morning on my bicycle: 5.30am start because of the lack of cars on the ride there and because cars do not come in until around 6.30am so it is much safer. The park is probably my favourite space in Sydney. It’s large and an interesting design with more than 100 years of history. I researched quite a bit about different aspects of the park, which I have added to the painting in the texts, which include comments about wildlife, trees and crimes committed there, giving an idea of the space.
