The Canberra Times | In The City Magazine
The nation's capital is far from a concrete jungle,
boasting a number of welcoming parks and
grassy nooks. EMMA KELLY explores the perfect
places to catch some sunshine this winter.
1 GLEBE PARK
Framed by lush canopies and a stone fence, Glebe Park is a welcome escape
from the hustle and bustle of city life. Towering English elms and oaks exude
a traditional English park character, while the 10 formal gateways are a nod
to the park's past, named to reflect the history of the area.
Today, Glebe Park is home to a large playground, barbecues and a 19th century-
style rotunda, perfect for hiding away from the cool winter breeze. A number of
interesting monuments are scattered across the park, reflecting Canberra's lively
art scene and creating a thought-provoking talking point.
4 WEST ROW PARK
West Row Park is another convenient nook for city-goers to enjoy the
winter sunshine. The quaint park has been revamped thanks to a $500,000
upgrade from Canberra CBD Limited and the ACT government, while the
Red and Blue Inge King sculpture acts as a thought-provoking centerpiece.
5 CITY WALK
In the heart of the city is City Walk, providing a number of grassy areas to
sit back and enjoy during the day. Relax by the calming sound of trickling
water emerging from The Canberra Times Fountain or turn down Ainslie
Avenue and find a seat beneath the shadow of the ACT Memorial.
6 NEW ACTON
Hidden beside Acton House lays the perfect garden to sit or explore.
Shadowed by Robyn Blau's momentous Time Thief steel sculpture,
depicting a large crow stealing an old train station clock, the New
Acton nook is the perfect place to snatch some downtime.
7 HEATHER & ARTHUR SHAKESPEARE SQUARE
Recently opened in the bustling City West, the Heather and Arthur
Shakespeare Square is the perfect spot for a city-side picnic or break.
The square honours the commitment of the Shakespeare family, including
The Canberra Times founding editor Arthur Shakespeare and his wife
and long-term employee Heather, both of whom were heavily involved
in the community.
3 CITY HILL
Situated in the centre of Vernon Circle and the wider London Circuit, there
is more to City Hill than panoramic views towards parliament house. With
the ACT flag flying from its peak, City Hill symbolises self-government and
forms a significant part of Walter Burley Griffin's plan for Canberra, with
Commonwealth Avenue and Constitution Avenue originating from the hill.
2 VETERANS PARK
Among the city's towering buildings sits Veterans Park, a popular lunchtime
destination for the city's workers. The park's memorial stands as a reminder
of the Australian men and women who served in wars in Vietnam, Korea,
Borneo and Malaysia. A number of benches and grassy patches provide the
perfect place to reflect on those servicemen and women who sacrificed their
lives overseas or to relax by the water fountain and clear one's head after a
