Hyde Park, Perth

4.5
#4 of 26 in Parks in Perth
Enjoy the shaded pathways of Hyde Park, 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 on your trip to Perth, use our Perth trip planner.

  • I love that i can bring my dog! The trees are really nice, they have yummy ice cream and coffee trucks and the most beautiful little pond! I saw so many people just sitting om benches and standing around the pond enjoying the view and taking pics.
  • Loved it. Very open place to put your kids round free. We had our kids birthdays here. Very safe to see kids in sight as they play around the play area. The play areas are well maintained by the council and proper. I would recommend the park for many children's functions or just quite place to have brunch or picnic at the park. The toilet are well maintained and reasonably clean.
