Centenary Park, Bulawayo

I went out, early in the morning, to take photographs of jacaranda trees for an artist who now lives in Australia (lets hope he uses one of my pics!)

Driving down through the park, I was distracted! Centenary ParkThere are a number of good examples in the Centenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary ParkCentenary Park

    • Thank you – the council keep a much smaller section going due to water shortages, but the trees in the other parts are still amazing. Ill go and take a photo shortly after the rains – then the grass will be green. Stunning fig trees and huge palms

    • The council maintains the area around the fountain but not the entire Park. Wedding photos are still taken at the fountain. I’ve heard the council has put some amenities available for private enterprise. Like the train ride

  1. I waited a long time for the photos to download, but at last they did and it was worth the wait. Frankie Kay,, your pictures are a joy to see. Thanks for sharing them, David Coltart? Bulawayo has so many happy memories for me.

    • Not sure why they took a long time to download???? I made sure all the photos on my blog are very small. Sorry about that. If you look on the right hand side of my post, you will see “Categories” and that will take you to other pics from around Zimbabwe and Southern africa

  2. I grew up in Bulawayo and these photos bring back so many memories and am happy to see that the park is well maintained and still a beautiful place to visit. Thanks for sharing and am sure your photos will have a big impact of any ex-Rhodesians.

  3. I grew up in Bulawayo, and one of my favorite photos of my mother, brother, sister and me was taken in Centenary Park…back in 1958. It is great to see the park with its beauty.

    • Its still lovely, although with the shortage of water, the council have had to cut down the size of the portion they maintain. There are still wedding photos taken at the fountain, and children play on the lush grass. Thank you for your comment and visit to my blog. I have lots of other photos on here, taken mostly in Matabeleland, so you will probably recall the places
