Hyde Park Perth, Perth

4.5
#3 of 13 in Parks in Perth
Enjoy the shaded pathways of Hyde Park Perth, where you can jog, rollerblade, bike, picnic, or simply enjoy a few quiet moments with a good book and a cup of coffee. European settlers turned this swampy zone into a public park in 1897, creating an urban green space that still plays an important social and ecological role. The park hosts frequent music festivals and live performances, and is a popular venue for weddings and family photographs. Also notable for its mature trees, the area is lined with figs, pines, jacarandas, cedars, and several indigenous eucalyptuses, some of which are over a century old. Two lakes located within the park attract a wide variety of birdlife, which includes ducks, coots, pelicans, and swans.

  • The best park in Perth! Stunning, full of character, it makes you feel special by just being there. The grounds are immaculately planted with soft flowing plants. There is a feeling of relaxation and serenity all around, next to well planed playgrounds, play fountains, BBQs and exercise stops. The lakes are abundant with wild life making bird watching so easy! The place to visit and enjoy!!!
  • Very pretty. great for photos. Good kids play area but it could do with a fence around the play equipment
  • I love this park. The morton bay fig trees give a special feel. Plenty of spots to sit. Or you can take a walk all the way around the lake on tbe paths. For those with kids thete are playgrounds and also a water playground. All free!

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
