  • 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.
  • A quaint park in the middle of town that is a great place to escape to during your lunch break, but not worth the detour if you are not a resident.
  • Really relaxing park setting in the city. Nice place to come to after work to wind down listening to the birds and waterfall
  • Very pretty. Lovely shaded spots. Well worth a visit!
  • 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.
