We visited this as we spotted the playground when driving past. It is situated amongst memorials to the Police and various others. It was a pleasant area near the lake and the playground looks like a quite new addition with more to be added later...More

In Canberra, there is no shortage of lovely green public open space. This is another of those parks. There is nothing particular to note about it but it is lovely there are so many.

Lake Burley Griffin is there to be enjoyed, especially its surrounds: the parks and gardens, wild and cultivated in turn, from a bike or on foot. It's a special feature of the National Capital.

This is a great spot to just kick back and relax. Good views across the lake,grassed lawns, bbq, toilets and the carillon has a nice chime every 15 mins. No cafes so best to take a picnic lunch and bike to ride around Lake Burley...More

One of the few pretty places in Canberra, King's Park is great on a warm sunny day (so obviously not in winter...) for a BBQ or picnic. Plenty of space and the lake is nice to look at.
