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.

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...More
