  • 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.  more »

  • Great little park hidden on the edge of the city. Love it so much we got married there. Under the huge big fig tree on the cobblestone stairs (which is great for climbing). It's always maintained very well, and the parking is generally free depending on time of day and length of stay. The gardens are just beautiful, and there are three ponds, two of which are connected by a waterfall! There are even ducks in the lake. You can easily forget you're in the city in this park. Great for eating lunch if you work nearby too.
  • Really relaxing park setting in the city. Nice place to come to after work to wind down listening to the birds and waterfall
  • A credit to the visionaries of Perth. Recent upgrades are beautiful and accommodating for all ages. A public bbq would set the scene and facilities.
  • Very pretty. Lovely shaded spots. Well worth a visit!
  • Very pretty park. Lovely breeze when you're on the higher side. Plenty of rubbish bins but no dog poo bags. We brought our own, so that was no issue for us, but not all dog owners can be trusted to be responsible. ;-)
