Ordinary Days at Sydney’s Belmore Park

Submitted by | 5,051 views
In one ordinary day on my way to Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD), I happened to pass by on a park called Belmore Park in the Haymarket Area. It’s actually a few minutes walk from Sydney’s Central Train Station accross Eddy Avenue. If you are a  Sydneysider, places like this seems so ordinary but reading the history of this park in City of Sydney website, it was mentioned that in “early years in the nineteenth, century this area was part of crown land containing the Police Barracks and residence, Devonshire Street Cemetery, Female Refuge of the Good Samaritan, Benevolent Asylum and a common. Belmore Park was known as the Police Paddock, as it was located adjacent to the Police Barracks. The area has long been associated with markets. In the late 1860s Belmore Produce Markets and Paddys Markets were built in the area opposite the current Belmore Park.”

Where Exactly in Sydney you can find Belmore Park?

My favorite Google friend (not really) taught me how to show a particular place online. I use Google maps to find a particular place of interest here in Sydney, Australia.
