It seems that the gardens date to the 1800's but were largely unkempt until redeveloped and upgraded as the centre piece of the development of Claisebrook Cove. It is now a nice oasis for visitors to enjoy and maintained to a high standard. Manicured lawn, flowers in bloom, trees, bounded on the West side by the Swan River and with views to Optus Stadium and Matagarup Bridge. Good picnic facilities, BBQ's and play areas. There are indigenous rock structures, a dreaming pathway, a four part mural adjacent the riverbank, and the artwork at the Bibbulmun Dreaming Story plaque. Interesting and enjoyable.
