Hyde Park is a large park in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Hyde Park is on the eastern side of the Sydney central business district. It is the southernmost of a chain of parkland that extends north to the shore of Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson). It takes the form of an approximate rectangle, being squared at the southern end and rounded at the northern end, bordered on the west by Elizabeth Street, on the east by College Street, on the north by St James Road and Prince Albert Road and on the south by Liverpool Street.
Around the park's boundaries lie the Supreme Court of New South Wales, St. James Church, Hyde Park Barracks and Sydney Hospital to the north, St Mary's Cathedral and the Australian Museum to the east, the Downing Centre to the south, the David Jones Limited flagship store and the Sydney central business district to the west. It is bisected through the middle by the east-west running Park Street.
