This is a short summer walk. A large park and wetland located adjacent to the former Sir Joseph Banks Hotel at 23 Anniversary Street Botany; and originally part of its curtilage. The park was created in 1988 as Botany Bay Council’s major Bicentennial project as an interpretative reconstruction of the Hotel’s famous ‘pleasure gardens’ and a new parkland area of wetlands and lakes formed by the spoil of the reclamation works associated with the expansion of Port Botany. The restoration was designed by landscape architect Bruce Mackenzie using original documentation of the grounds, including maps, illustrations and descriptions, and includes a reconstructed oval, running track, wetlands (including ponds), picnic facilities and a contemporary interpretation of the original zoo, as a playground space with life-sized animal sculptures including bears, tigers, elephants , camels and gorillas; which was sponsored by local manufacturer Kellogs and sculpted by William Rees, a Perth animal portraitist. The park also features other sculptural animals including topiary frames of groups of elephants in the regenerated bushland on the western side of the oval; and thematic gardens, a maze, pergolas, terraces and arbours. The main sculptural feature, apart from the animals, is of Sir Joseph Banks in a pose of heroic discovery. The reclaimed area includes lakes, wetlands and two large picnic/BBQ facilities. https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/heritageapp/ViewHeritageItemDetails.aspx?ID=1210025 View Esther's future walks Social distancing, mask, sanitizer.
