Hyde Park Perth, Perth

4.5
#3 of 18 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. To visit Hyde Park Perth on your trip to Perth, use our Perth trip planner.

  • Fantastic place for a walk with the family. Loads of huge trees and shade. The Grove was planted in the late 1800's. So there are some very old, and very large trees. They have some very interesting plants, and kids who enjoy nature, might marvel at some of the huge root systems of trees, and enjoy finding a variety of seed pods lying around. Great variety of play options for kids. Some of the leaf litter is thorny, so I would advise kids to wear shoes. There are a few little lakes as well, so kids definitely need adult supervision.
  • HYDE PARK is the place where my mother and father were married so in a way you could say that thanks to Hyde Park I exist. I also had my wedding photos taken there as do so many other happy couples as well as models having their modelling shoots taken there and why I hear you ask? Because it is such a beautiful place to be. There are playgrounds for the children and BBQ areas for the families, plenty delightful water birds frolicking in the lakes, picnic areas and plentiful shady trees that have been there for decades. You see Hyde Park isn't just another lovely park it is part of Perth's History. It has a lovely walk around the lake with light exercise equipment to use and seats under shady trees if you just want to rest and take in the beautiful scenery. It has well kept toilets as well as disability amenities and the gardens are very well taken care of. The park itself is nestled just outside of the City outskirts yet is somehow still so serene. I thoroughly recommend you go and experience Hyde Park for yourself.
  • This is a beautiful park. Great central location. Really nice to walk around. Lots of ducks and water birds. It is not advisable to feed the birds though. They get enough food from their natural habitat and bread can pollute the lake and make their home unhealthy. There are some exercise stations dotted around the walk way that have useful information. This is a historic park and definitely worth a visit.
  • What a lovely park. It has lakes and a fountain, with paths and grasses areas to satisfy the most ardent keep fit person or even for a stroll around it.
  • Very good place. Good view. I usually come here twice a week after class. Very relaxing my brain.
