Commonwealth Park is a few minutes walk from the city and is a very peaceful place for a stroll. It is a popular place at lunchtime with many city workers enjoying their lunch while taking in the view of Canberra, surrounded by the Brindabella Ranges. Cycling, walking and jogging around the lake are also popular pastimes. There is a large waterlily pond surrounded by weeping willow trees with a pretty bridge. Closer to Commonwealth Bridge, you will find a cool, shady rhododendron grove. If you have not brought a picnic, Regatta Point Restaurant provides meals and snacks. Come spring, the park hosts the flower show Floriade.
