Centennial Park, Federation Gateway

Federation Gateway, near Anzac Parade, provides a grand opening to Federation Way from Moore Park to Centennial Park. This contemporary gate stands eight metres tall in timber, copper, bronze and cast iron and is inspired by the geometry of tree canopies. It was designed by Australian architect and urban designer, Alexander Tzannes and built in 2001 for the the Australian Centenary of Federation.
