Hyde Park improvement works
Package 1 – Fig replanting at the Archibald Fountain
Package 2 – Pool of Reflection upgrade
Package 3 – Path restoration and access improvements
The City will be restoring the path network, which will improve connections between different parts of the park.
Works include simplifying the layout of some of the smaller paths in Hyde Park North, and improving accessibility at the park entrances at College and Park streets.
We will also be improving access to services for the increasing number of events being held in the park. This includes installing new water, power and sewer supply points and improving existing lighting in the park so it can be better used at events.
Package 4 – Museum Station easy access upgrade and café
Transport for NSW is making changes at Museum Station to improve access for customers. The project includes:
- a new lift connecting the entry of the station on the corner of Elizabeth and Liverpool streets and the underground station concourse
- two new lifts connecting the station concourse with the platforms
- an accessible ramp at the station entrance
- a new family accessible toilet
- refurbishment of the toilets within the concourse.
Hyde Park South Café will be demolished as part of the project. The City will rebuild the café and outdoor seating area once Transport for NSW has completed its works.

We are repairing and restoring the sandstone perimeter wall and sandstone features in and around Hyde Park. This conservation work will focus on many of the park’s significant features, including walls, stairs and pavements.
The works will respect the heritage significance by matching the current character and details. These works include repairing the boundary walls, capping, plinths, kerbs and stairs.
Expert City of Sydney stonemasons will undertake the works to restore and protect the sandstone features for future generations.
The works will be done in stages between May 2014 and July 2016.
