Bicentennial Park, Lake Belvedere

The picturesque Lake Belvedere at Bicentennial Park, Homebush Bay. It's hard to believe that this park was once a rubbish tip.

  1. Looks like a very well looked-after spot in the sun, especially with the tidy half-moon of trees in the background.

  3. A beautiful lake. All of your Bicentennial Park photos are wonderful. I particularly like the one of the wetlands.

  5. What a BEAUTIFUL spot ... especially knowing it was once used for refuse. We have a stretch of shoreline once known as 'tin-can' beach that has been reclaimed and renamed Bolsa Chica. You'd never know it was once an eyesore filled with hazards. Thanks for dropping by my Watery post at Sacred Ruminations.
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Ow I remember when they were building Homebush for the olympics, I used to live in Meadowbank and would often go check out the massive amount of building works.
    Thanks for taking me back all those years, its hard to believe what was there before they built this all.

  10. And thank you for visiting mine!
    Beautiful picture on yours here, Bicentennial Park is just the kind of place we love to find.
    One of our favorite places for birdwatching is in Arcadia CAlifornia and it is actually a drainage lagoon, but they have made it into a beautiful canal and waterway.

  11. Thats a huge improvment over a dump. I wonder why the trees are in a semi circle maybe its from the olympics.
