Hyde Park Perth, Perth

4.5
#4 of 26 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.

  • For me one of the best family park in Perth. Great for young and old, plenty of open spaces. BBQ facilities are plentiful, reasonably clean public toilet. Great water play area for kids, and very well stationed playgrounds throughout the park. Photographers will have a great time at this park. Autumn is one of the great time. Overall awesome place.
  • Perhaps the best walking park in Perth. Beautiful surrounds and so much shade. A summer stroll around the lakes is absolutely fantastic. Parking is a challenge and the playground is frustratingly unshaded. Would love to come here more often but these two factors rule it out at times.
