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.

King's park offers a nice grassy area and a few benches to overlook the captain cook jet, on the other side of Commonwealth Park. The park has a main walking trail and shared bike path. The park contains or is quite close to numerous other attractions such as Regatta Point, National Galleries, High Court, and National Library, Commonwealth Park, Carillion,... More

Kings Park runs along the North-Eastern edge of Lake Burley Griffin. Aside from being a nice park with large lawns and plenty of shade to enjoy, the park hosts some lovely monuments and provides access to the National Carillon. There is parking aplenty, and the views across the lake are fantastic. Recommended.
