Centennial Park, Paddington Gates

Paddington Gates is an entrance to Centennial Park located on the corner Oxford Street and Lang Road, providing access from the eastern suburb of Paddington. The five sandstone columns with cast iron gates were designed by Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon for the park's official dedication in 1888, Australia's centenary of European settlement. A plaque on the on the central column celebrates this event.
