  • Wonderful park. Very impressive that 4.6km2 of real estate has been set aside as park so close to the city of Perth. Relaxing, abundant vegetation, gardens, lawns, seating. Picnic tables, cafe, terrific playgrounds for children. We only saw a small portion of it. Well maintained. Highly recommend a visit with or without children. ( Extraordinary population of crows / Ravens for an urban area !!! )
  • My family always take the opportunity to visit Kings Park whenever we are in Perth city. The grounds are so well kept, it is clean and picturesque. There are a variety of interesting areas to visit including coffee shops, restaurant, children's playground, the DNA tower, beautiful gardens, lake with fountains and more. This is a great place to exercise, walk, run, ride and enjoy the native vegetation and trees of Australia. There are public toilets, drinking fountains and many small tracks to investigate. Very nice monuments of remembrance and tablets showing sponsors for original planting of trees on entry to park, so cool. If your new to Perth check it out, you can spend the whole day investigating without seeing it all.
  • The best position to look the city scene. Day time and night time are different feeling. I prefer go there to see the sunset and the night scene. It's a big park not only go to lookout. You need to look the flowers, trees, animals.... Difference seasons have different plants. Enjoying your time in the kings park.
  • Loved visiting the Park and Gardens after hearing so much about them. Well worth a visit or even two visits because it’s so hard to see everything in one visit! Loved the glass bridge and all other unique features! My first time visiting Western Australia from Victoria, with 2 sisters who have been here a few times without me!!
  • Simply amazing! Clean and beautiful! Free entrance. Lot of parking spots. This is a great place for walk, exercise, run, ride and enjoy in nature of Australia! This place is good for kids, the grounds are so well-kept. There are several landscape views.
