Conveniently located near the centre of Canberra, this park is a great place to take a break. I find it is generally not to busy with surprisingly few people taking advantage of the park. Nice gazebo in the middle and plenty of nearby cafes to...More

“European style” because it’s not the usual, dry brown grass, gumtrees and eucalypts found in most Australian parks, rather it’s a green shady haven of peace (most of the time) planted with oaks and chestnut trees and turfed with soft green grass. It’s strictly dogs...More

Glebe Park is a beautiful green space in the CBD and is worth a visit if in the area. Enclosed by ornate wrought iron fencing, this well maintained park is an oasis in the middle of Canberra City, with the rotunda being a real centrepiece....More

Great park for little and big kids alike! Some were walking their dogs there but we didn't see any dog poo anywhere, nice responsible owners. We walked daily from our apartment to the Canberra shopping centre, the park was such a relaxing place to walk...More

We were visiting Canberra for a few days and needed somewhere central to allow our 4yo to run around. Glebe Park was nicely maintained with a large playground. Perfect.

A beautiful relaxing Park in the middle of the city (well it's pretty close) Park benches, rotunda and a children's playground. Toilets, plenty of area to walk or ride. For the central location it allows a great breathing space if you need to get away...More

I woke up early 2 out of 5 days for a morning stroll at Glebe Park. The air was clean and the greenery was neat. Glad that it was right next to Crowne Plaza Hotel.

This is a lovely park during summer with plenty of oak trees giving great shade but a little cool during winter, well most places are here in winter. There are places for ball games, a picnic and it's a great family park in the English...More

This was a nice little park for a morning walk as we were staying at the Crowne Plaza and it meant we could have a stroll after breakfast to help the food go down before we went out for the day.

If you feel like a bit of quiet contemplation, or perhaps a walk, this park is ideal. You'll find it right at the edge of the Canberra Centre shopping precinct on Bunda Street, so if you want a breather from hectic shopping or perhaps the...More
