Lovely park on banks of river. Walking and bike paths and lots of wildlife to watch. Makes a great place for a walk out from the Crown complex (and to walk off the fine dining indulged in there!). Beautiful location

This area is a terrific area for a walk or cycle. It has a shared pedestrian and cycle path which follows the Swan River foreshore. There is lots of grassed areas to sit and enjoy a picnic or just take a break.

The is an abundance of wildlife in the river and the banks to observe and sometimes you will see a dolphin frolicking or feeding nearby.

This is a fantastic area for families.

Lovely little park. Play equipment for the children including hopscotch built into the pathways. Well made historical sculptures. Plenty of trees for shade. Beautiful river views and a bitumen path along the river bank that suits walkers, bike riders, and apparently goes quite a distance although we didn't leave the immediate area. Just a bit of a walk to Optus Stadium from the park.

Just a nice green park next to Optus Stadium, the highlight for us the statue of Willem de Vlamingh who gave the Swan River it's name.

Great for walking, running and cycling the Burswood Park is a perfect destination for people of all ages and abilities. The playgrounds near the Optus Stadium are excellent for younger children and the wildlife is abundant due to the sensitive water and landscape design.
