Suburb Profile - Queens Park
Queens Park is an eastern suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 6 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Waverley Council.
Queens Park is east of the park and suburb known as Centennial Park, west of Waverley and Charing Cross, south of Bondi Junction and north of Randwick.
Queens Park was originally part of the Sydney Common and later the Lachlan Swamps Water Reserve. Today it is a large urban park, part of Centennial Parklands. It was dedicated with Centennial Park in 1888 as part of the centenary celebrations of European settlement in Australia.
Numerous playing fields are located on the southern and western flatter sections of the park. It has been used for sports fields since 1938. Moriah College which is just across the road also uses the park for their PDHPE lessons and other schools in Sydney also use the park.
The Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust undertook major renovations of Queens Park in 2009 to improve the quality of the playing fields which are used daily. The Trust also completed a major renovation of the popular children's playground in 2009, and developed a shared cycleway to link the eastern suburbs cycle network with Centennial Park, New South Wales.
The park is surrounded by houses on three sides however only houses on the parks northern and eastern sides form the suburb of Queens Park. The area previously formed part of the suburb of Bondi Junction but was proclaimed a suburb by the Geographic Names Board of New South Wales on 2 October 1992. Houses on the eastern side date from the Victorian era. Those on the northern and southern sides are mainly Federation.
Significant sites in the suburb include the Eastern Suburb Banksia Scrub located on the south eastern side of the Moriah College site, Moriah College, and the building contained within the college that formed the former Eastern Suburbs Hospital.
Queens Park, the suburb, takes its name from the park of the same name on its southern border. Once part of Bondi Junction, the suburb's name was officially recognised in 1992.
