For four weeks each spring Commonwealth Park welcomes Floriade, Australia's largest spring festival. The park also hosts many colourful outdoor concerts and events at other times.
Whether you're with family, friends or just taking some time out alone, Commonwealth Park is a beautiful place to be any time of year.
