Urban development is consolidated around Lake Tuggeranong which was created by the construction of a dam on a tributary of the Murrumbidgee river in 1987. On the edge of the lake are a number of community facilities, including Lake Tuggeranong College, a school catering to years 11 and 12 (16 – 18 years old); a Library, which is part of Library and Information Services, a Community Centre, two fast food outlets, and the Tuggeranong Arts Centre.
The Tuggeranong Town Centre is to the west of the lake. It includes a major shopping centre, known as the Tuggeranong Hyperdome (referring to the architectural use of semi-opaque domes in the roof) or by the newer name Centro Tuggeranong Hyperdome. Centro Tuggeranong Hyperdome is managed, developed and part owned by Centro Properties Group. It is surrounded by offices of the Australian and ACT Governments, and a light industrial area.

Famous quotes containing the words structure and/or urban:
“Slumism is the pent-up anger of people living on the outside of affluence. Slumism is decay of structure and deterioration of the human spirit. Slumism is a virus which spreads through the body politic. As other isms, it breeds disorder and demagoguery and hate.”
—Hubert H. Humphrey (19111978)
“The city is a fact in nature, like a cave, a run of mackerel or an ant-heap. But it is also a conscious work of art, and it holds within its communal framework many simpler and more personal forms of art. Mind takes form in the city; and in turn, urban forms condition mind.”
—Lewis Mumford (18951990)
