Commonwealth Park is a large landscaped park which runs from the city centre to the edge of Lake Burley Griffin. The park is the perfect place to stroll, run, ride, play and picnic with its wide open grassed areas and intimate sculptured gardens, ponds and artworks.
The park includes a large outdoor stage called Stage 88, an amphitheatre and a playground for kids. It’s also home to the National Capital Exhibition at Regatta Point and each year is the venue for the nationally acclaimed festival of flowers, Floriade.
