  • As a local, how do you rate kings park? I can't imagine this city without it I would have had so many good times here over my life (and a couple of important bad times) If you a not from Perth, Kings Park is beautiful. And big, so there is a lot to see (or exercise through) from the popular spots, some of which seem to get renamed regularly based on corporate sponsorship, to natural bushland and some smaller war memorials that many people do notice so much. Do a dawn service for ANZAC Day if you get the chance. The view across the city and river is just amazing. All year. All weather. Just different types of amazing. There is a huge stretch of area with a great views, just amazing. If you get the chance to go to an outdoor concert in the bowl, do it. And the children's playground and lake area (that changes name with sponsorship) its a great family picnic location, and has been for generations. There is a great play ground for kids here (there used to be a much better one!! sadly I assume it didn't meet the changing safety expectations of modern life) a lake with an island and... Um dinosaurs. And as I mentioned earlier kings park is big, apparently the biggest inner city park in the world (sorry New York, I'm sure yours is impressive too) so there is definitely more I haven't mentioned yet (Like botanical gardens) but as I also mentioned, as a local it is hard to rate Kings Park, it just is.
  • It was amazing to stand so high up and be overlooking such wonderful and different views for miles. You could see all the skyscrapers in the City, the sea, the river and beautiful countryside. We climbed 101 steps to the top of the DNA tower and could see for miles. The gardens were beautiful with many exotic plants and flowers and their names were displayed. We spent quite a few hours here and know there was lots more that we didn’t see. There is also a cafe in the grounds that served snacks and drinks. Well worth a visit.
  • A fantastic viewing spot of the city. Great open areas for picnics or jest relaxing. Wonderful walkways through botanical gardens. Restaurant and eating areas. Playgrounds for children including a relatively new adventure playground. Plaques that have been placed under trees along the roads showing respect and remembrance to those soldiers that have fallen. A must see spot if visiting Perth.
  • What is there not to love about Kings Park? There is something for everyone. Plenty of differently themed children and family fun parks, and BBQ and picnic areas, nature walks, Jacob's Ladder for the fittest and not so fit, but botanical gardens, treetop walks, and great views and of course a fine dining function centre that I have been to for a wedding that was simply exquisite. For the rest of us a great take away with all the Aussie family favourites. Even my pup loves traversing through the tracks. See something for everyone - Love it!
  • Family friendly park also good for all age group people, mind blowing view of Perth city, never mind at what time you go there the view is always spectacular. A very good location for photo shoots or simply for creating good memories. It has very good cafe with vegetarian option, I loved the velvet cake. Lots of plants, trees, foliage are there.
