This sunken park was inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

For local residents, the Paddington Reservoir Gardens is a serene pocket of green sunken beneath busy Oxford Street, but there was a time when the reservoir served as just that, a water reservoir for a growing Sydney. Once Paddington's main water supply, it's now an idyllic park inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
