Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Weston Park is right on Lake Burley Griffin at Yarralumla. It has excellent shared bike paths, a small petting zoo, mini train, cafe and water features. There are usually a few kangaroos eating the grass. The park is big and it’s easy to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. The point is a good spot to launch a kayak from and there are several designated swimming spots. It can get a little crowded near the petting zoo on a sunny day but it’s easy to get away from the crowds.

We rested here for a while and had a sort of picnic, under some beautiful trees. This is a really nice park with some wonderful features. The landscaping is quite lovely and so are the water features. It is very good for families with children, but also for anyone trying to relax in peace and quiet. The views can be exceptional, depending on where you choose to get them from, and try to avoid the walkers and runners!

Great spot for a walk or run, mostly on a paved pathway, with the circuit being around 4km in length. Parts of the walk is by the lake itself and parts through the park.

There are also some great swimming spots, including one with a sandy beach and pontoon, and some good spots to launch your kayak or paddle board.

A great place to show visitors kanagaroos roaming free early morning or late afternoons (3.30pm onwards). Nice place to walk around edge of lake.

This park is one of my favourite places in Canberra - a beautiful & relaxing spot for a picnic, either in the daytime or at sunset. It is low key space with a lovely kids playground, lots of open space, shady trees, places in the sun, a swimming beach for the lake, kangaroos, trees, paths and lots of lovely green grass and (& some picnic tables & bbq’s). Apart from that there is also a moving memorial to refugees who lost their lives at sea. A beautiful & peaceful space in which to enjoy the simple things in life.

We visited the park in late Spring with our son and his family who were visiting from Sydney. It was quiet, clean, and beautiful at sunset. The main attractions would be free roaming kangaroos that stayed within an area, the calming lake with bike and hiking paths around it, and a train for kids that went around the park (although it was too late in the day for the kids to experience it). There are tables, benches and barbecue facilities or you can just lay down on a mat and read a book.

Area opposite the miniature train has shaded tables, loos, BBQ plates, play areas and equipment, lots of grass and space to run about or lie under trees. Great views out to Lake Burley Griffin, and to water features - ponds, bridges. Plenty of room, even with lots of people.

I have been to Weston Park off-and-on for the last 40 years. I appreciate it's solitude and open spaces. The "new" railway and café are an improvement on the old one that was tired. There are kids' facilities that our grandchildren can not enjoy that our children just loved. That's OHS rules for you! I do not miss the many kangaroos that used to breed there madly. I like the Yarralumla Nursery close by - so many nurseries have closed but this one thrives!
