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

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.
