Please note, while restrictions put in place to respond to COVID-19 are easing, there may be some changes to business-as-usual to keep workers and visitors safe. Please contact the business for the most up to date information, including opening times and social distancing measures.

Head out into the fresh air and enjoy some green space right in the centre of the city. Take a picnic or go for a walk and enjoy a diverse selection of flora.

Like the rest of Canberra, Glebe Park was designed to transform with the four distinct seasons. In the summer the English elms provide welcome shade, in autumn they glow like molten gold.

Glebe Park offers a playground, sculptures, artwork and irrigated grass so you can enjoy feeling the earth beneath your feet.

A stage and gazebo are also available for bookings.

“Beautiful park and good for kids”

Reviewed on 09/08/2020

Beautiful green park with iron gates around the perimeter. Two playgrounds for the kids. One is a more modern/wooden one. The other is an older more traditional one with slides and swings. Great fun...
