This park is right near work so thought I'd visit before work one morning. Colleagues had advised not to go after work because it's getting darker earlier now and apparently it's popular with homeless. On my early morning visit I found the leftovers of an empty bottle of alcohol (spirits) and some soft drink bottles. Apart from that, it was... More

Situated not far from the city centre towards the end of Wellington Street in West Perth, it's easily accessible via the free CAT bus service - (green stop 8/yellow stop 18). It's well maintained and tranquil with plenty of shaded areas, streams and ponds. Take a picnic or just relax and enjoy!

A quiet and relaxing park in a silent neighbourhood. An excellent place to spend some time reading or just having a nap in the grass. Weddings are celebrated there from time to time.

A great place to meet up for... More

I guess area 2 is the most stunning as it has the waterfall as a backdrop and the entrance is by a quaint bridge and is surrounded by a cute little river. There is a public toilet in the park but the only negative is parking can be difficult.

This is a little gem of a park that probably gets over shadowed by the high profile Kings Park nearby This park is extremely well maintained by the City of Perth & has excellent gardens & natural looking water feature Playground for the children

This attraction was ok, not my cup of tea though but thought I would pop along as it was in the guide book. Great place to visit if you love nature and flowers/shrubbery.
