City Hill is a park located in Canberra, Australia on one of the points of the Parliamentary Triangle, a feature of Walter Burley Griffin’s plan for the city. It is surrounded by London Circuit, which is a hexagonal road that encircles the hill. Several important buildings are located on London Circuit. These include the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly, the Supreme Court, the ACT Magistrates Court, the historic Sydney and Melbourne Buildings, and the Canberra Theatre. There are various locations here where we can find Floriade displays, including at the hill itself and near the terminus of the Light Rail.
Glebe Park is a remnant of a hundred acres (40 hectares) of land allocated to the Anglican Church in the early 1840s for use as a glebe, an area of land whose revenues contribute towards parish expenses. With the founding of Canberra as the nation’s capital, it reverted to the Commonwealth and subsequently proclaimed as a park in 1983. Glebe House was formerly situated here but no longer exists, but some remnants remain such as elaborate gates. The present size of the park is just under 5 hectares or one-eighth of it’s original size.
