Commonwealth Park

Take a walk or have a picnic on the lawns in this beautifully landscaped park in the city, right on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin.

You'll find interesting sculptures, hidden walks and tranquil ponds within the park's 34.5 hectares.

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.

Nice and relaxing

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

A fantastic place to enjoy a picnic. This is a hidden gem in Canberra with great play areas for the children and a lot of lovely water parks within. It is a great place to have a work function.

Nice for the quiet space

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

This Lek boarders the lake and I was lucky to find some piece and quiet here this weekend. The park is used for music events, civic events but it's best for picnics and family outings. Good...

Great walk

Pleasant walk along the lake, concrete paths, grassed open areas, some picnic tables, views across the lake, lots of joggers and walkers. Limited parking on weekends, popular with locals.
