Sydney Olympic Park Tourist Attraction

Sydney Olympic Park

The Olympic Park is located in Western Sydney, sixteen kilometers from the Central business district of the city. The district, where the Park was built, began to develop before the Olympic games of 2000. The sports complex that meets international requirements and standards was created there. All necessary stadiums were united in the Olympic Park, which was connected with the urban railway by a special line. After the Olympic games, the active use of the Olympic Park area continued. Important representatives of the business environment moved there. The key cultural events take place in the Olympic Park: the City's Royal Easter show, Sydney festival and Sydney 500. The ANZ Stadium hosts matches of the National Rugby League, Australian Rugby League and National Football League. The complex also includes exhibition halls, where regular exhibitions of contemporary art are held. Everything in the Park reminds about the Olympics of 2000. There is a fountain in the shape of a bowl for the Olympic flame. People bathe underneath it like under a shower. There is a monument commemorating volunteers, who helped to run the Olympic games. Their names are engraved on metal pillars. Another symbol is a ladder to the sky, on the steps of which human abilities are engraved in Latin. There is a skate park, playgrounds for younger and elder children in the Olympic Park. You can also visit the free cinema under the open sky.
