- Lake Burley Griffin is the brainchild of Walter Burley Griffin, the architect of Canberra City. Scrivener Dam, at the west end of the lake, slows the Molonglo River and creates the many basins of the lakes. Many diverse habitats and ecosystems, natural and man made, surround this body of water, which is the focus of such leisure sports as fishing, swimming, cycling, walking, jogging and rowing. There are picnic areas at Yarramundi Reach, Weston and Commonwealth Park as well as Black Mountain Peninsula. Lennox Gardens and the Canberra Yacht Club can be found at Lotus Bay. .
