Telopea Park, which has National Trust classification, was part of Walter Burley Griffin's design for Canberra. The edge of the park is planted in a formal manner, while the central area has large shady trees growing informally. Charles Weston designed the initial planting, using a variety of Eucalyptus, river oaks and wattles. Weston planted deciduous poplars and willows near the stream which runs through the centre of the park. Exotic evergreen trees provide more interest and are a haven for the native birds.
