Today's photos are from my home town in Australia. Back in 1988 Australia celebrated its Bicentennial of European settlement. I was only ten back then but I remember that there were many celebrations throughout the country. My home town decided to turn an old sports field that was near the centre of town into a scenic park in celebration of the Bicentennial. The park has many different features such as granite sculptures, short walking trails, ponds and a big stage where they could hold free concerts. They did a really great job at making the park something that Tamworth could be proud of. Below is a few photos of Bicentennial Park that I took right before I moved to America
Bicentennial Park sign.
The main lake that forms the centre piece of the park. There are walking trails that goes around the lake.
One of the many statues celebrating Australia's country music artists. Tamworth is known as the Country Music Capital and has a big festival every January.
The concert stage and grass field. There are concerts and other events that are held throughout the year.
The park is often home to a large family of ducks and other wildlife.
Just outside the front gates of the park is the central business district of town. When you are in the park it is sometimes hard to remember that you are so close to the hustle and bustle of down town Tamworth.
So that is a quick tour of Bicentennial Park. Does your current town or home town have a beautiful park?
