Trumper Park – View over Paddington


Oxford Street Paddington is a ridge line which falls over a 1:20 incline the 1.5kms down to Rushcutters Bay. The small stream that used to tumble through Trumper Park is known as Glen Brook. One of the streets that runs down to the park is called Cascade Street.


On the left of the first photograph is the Paddington Town Hall, and further around to the right is the smoke stack of the old Royal Hospital for Women, across the road from my apartment.

As the final photograph testifies, we are not far from the city.

beautiful photos, Julie
we are holidaying in hawaii right now, but I'm all stuffed up with a chronic sinus problem, so trying to catch up on some commenting.
I really admire the depth of your knowledge - many of us know little or nothing about our own areas.

It's amazing how well an area of grass and trees can hide the noise and bustle of a city. I remember noticing the same thing about Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and the Finch Arboretum in Spokane, WA.

What? No jacaranda in the last pic?

Great view. I like seeing the different coloured roofs on the terrace houses at Paddo.

I did have a photo with a Jac to choose from as a city scene, but it bit the dust.

The colorful roofs provide some interest and variety in this view. You live in a nice area.

Great photos. I also love the roofs. This is such a great part of Sydney. You capture it well Julie.

I too will chime in about the lovely roof colors. I wish all urban spaces could be like this.
