Animated yet easygoing, the lush expanse of land that is Commonwealth Park contains a number of trails and paths, as well as some verdant fields for relaxing and picnicking. A small pond and other water features are complemented by some picturesque views of the National Gallery and National Library. The park also boasts several prominent memorials and monuments. Put Commonwealth Park and other Canberra attractions into our Canberra trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
Commonwealth Park Reviews
This city is very green and is absolutely full of parks so this is one of many, huge, expansive and open without many people. Just open. more »
Run, ride, walk or just sit and enjoy the views. Playground area for the kids. Plenty of space to picnic and play. Within walking distance for the city centre. more »
At Floriade 2018, was very nice to see it & a nice day out.
Such a great looking place. Always so well looked after and presented.
