  • What better place to see our city and the Swan. Makes for some picturesque scenes. Relax, take a stroll, have a picnic. Pizza and burgers at the Kiosk are good. The plants and gardens are well looked after. Plenty of parking but can get full quickly on good days or when Pokemon is around. This is only the front half of the park, plenty more to explore at the back.
  • Kings Park has something for everyone. Great place for a workout, a relax or a play with the kids. There are a great number of parks within the park for all tastes. The park is very well maintained and the wildflower festival is an absolute must! Dogs are allowed - but must be on leads all the time and park staff are sure to tell you about it! Highly recommended
  • I came here at night to sit with my friend in the car. The view of the city was beautiful and it was so peaceful. During the day there is lots to look at, including native plants, beautiful gardens, and wildlife. There's a great playground for kids, walk trails, and just calm and beautiful scenery everywhere. It's a perfect place for a picnic. Highly recommended!
  • Kings Park and the Botanic Garden is one of my favourite places in Perth. There's so many things to see and do. There's the beautiful botanic garden with great plants. There's good areas where you can lay down on the grass and relax. Some awesome little lakes with water fountains. Some pavillons where you can sit and avoid the sun. There's the stunning DNA tower and the iconic war memorial with one of the best views of the Perth Skyline and the Swan River. It's simply the place to be!
  • Absolutely lovely stroll taking in the Perth skyline and Swan River. The plants are out of this world - beautiful (we’re from America so very different than what we’re used to seeing). The park is very pristine and well maintained. Great gift shop that has lots of local made gifts, and a cafe for some quick food and drinks (pricey though, better to pack your own). We spent a few hours here, could easily have packed a lunch and done a few more. Great place to relax, reflect and connect with nature.
