The Policy of Connecting Avenues between our various Parks.

We should have a shady walk or drive from the Circular Quay to Centennial Park and beyond, and back to the starting point by a different route. At the present time we have some dusty road, then some park, then a bit of tree-lined road, then very much more dusty road. When we have the necessary leisure to enjoy it we ought to be able to make long journeys under aesthetic conditions. It is too much to expect that all business premises and residences shall have park-like surroundings, but the continuity of our pleasaunces can be more attended to if we set about it.

This matter is akin to the problem of constructing adequate arterial roads of approach to Sydney. Study a map for a moment and see how inadequate and even petty our main roads are. Some of them have the same direction as the track of a perplexed insect. But here I am encroaching on the domain of the professional townplanner, and my work is only a subordinate part.
