In Canberra, there is no shortage of lovely green public open space. This is another of those parks. There is nothing particular to note about it but it is lovely there are so many.

Lake Burley Griffin is there to be enjoyed, especially its surrounds: the parks and gardens, wild and cultivated in turn, from a bike or on foot. It's a special feature of the National Capital.

One of the few pretty places in Canberra, King's Park is great on a warm sunny day (so obviously not in winter...) for a BBQ or picnic. Plenty of space and the lake is nice to look at.
