City parks and gardens were public places where popular and official interpretations of respectability and civic identity were negotiated. In Sydney, increasingly comprehensive regulations governing behaviour in the Botanic Gardens, the Domain and Hyde Park were introduced from the 1850s to the early 1900s. They evinced hostility towards many aspects of existing urban culture. These regulations were not always welcomed by park users. The culture of Sydney's public parks and gardens continued to demonstrate a strong popular sense of civic rights and respectability.
