A Good Park

This is a very good park with a lake on one side. One can have a walk around the park or play in the park. A good place for picnic. It is close to Canberra city.

Very nice spot for cycling unfortunately one side of it is closed for some constructions. If you are going for morning walks this is the idoleal place as there are big trees which provides lots of shades

This is a lovely park overlooking the lake. There are shady trees to sit under and nice green grass to sit on.

Gorgeous conifers and cold weather trees inhabit this little peace of quiet which looks down towards Parliament House. Lovely spot to find a chair and just watch the world pass by for a few minutes.

Lovely treed park with a lake, right next to the Lake trail and close to loads of attractions. Good rest areas, places for picnics, shady trees, play grounds for kids etc etc.

This is an excellent place to take a family. There is space for riding bikes and paths to walk along. Being by the lake it's pretty and picturesque.

The infrastucture a little aged now but it is still a beautifully designed park. You can take a walk around the lake or just have a look at the place. Lots of place to play games and relax. You will always be able to find a free spot.

We strolled through the greater park during our visit to Floriade. It is a lovely large park with ponds and paths along Lake Burley-Griffin. Ideal spots for a picnic abound. I am sure when Floriade is not on there would be ample parking. There are lovely views across the lake to some of the major Canberra attractions too. I think... More

We were lucky enough to be there when Floriade was on in the park. The gardens were covered in beautiful flowers and sculptures. Plenty to see, do and eat here and it's free!!

This is the venue for Floriade. A bucket list item and destination for us. We were disappointed with organisation or lack of car parking and signage, lack of sufficient table and chairs for dining at food venue, Quality of tulips in particular as they appeared stressed and under nourished.
