Hyde Park Perth, Perth

4.5
#4 of 24 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.

  • Having been unaware Hyde Park was within walking distance of our accommodation we were happy to find a lovely lake surrounded by so many mature trees close by. Obviously it is well used by the locals ...  more »
  • This is a lovely park to walk around and maybe enjoy a picnic here. Two lakes provide homes for water birds as well as ensuring a pretty backdrop for you Sunday sojourn.  more »

  • As a tourist it was very nice with all the trees and waterbirds. Would like to have more information on the different trees around! The Jacaranda... How does that look? Beautiful kept lawns!
  • A nice large park with lots of lovely trees, couple of ponds with water birds, lots of grassed areas to simply lounge or let the kids safely play and run about. There's a long enough walking track around the ponds. Overall, a superbly maintained and lovely place to be in. Finding a place to park your car on holidays might be a bit of a problem; not as much due a lack of parking space but more due the crowd you'd find there.
