This is a beautifully tranquil spot situated close to the Perth city centre. It's great to run or cycle around and has several workout stations on route so you can do pull ups and leg presses. For running outside, with numerous shady spots, I think you'll be hard pushed to find a better location. It's also great for ramblers and... More

The locals come here to walk, jog or cycle around the 3.5km circuit or take the kids to the fenced playgrounds. The visitors come to see the wildlife, particularly the black swans and Japanese tour buses stop at the lake for a photo stop. What is hard to imagine now in this tranquil oasis close to the city is that,... More

Nestled among the offices of Osborne park and Herdsman, the lake is a great place to explore, walk or jog. Lots to look at, but mind out for snakes in season. Great duel purpose cycleway all the way around.

We had a fantastic afternoon, we were even chased by a family of black swans. The kids love the paths and the playgrounds, all of the mums were great to talk to as well.

We went for the 3.5 kilometre walk around the Lake Monger last Sunday evening. It's a great place for all the family to enjoy. The paths are set up for walking, jogging, cycling et cetera, and they are well used. There are large expanses of lawn, as well as picnic areas and barbeques. We had the added joy of seeing... More

A breath of fresh air on the door step of Perth. Great place to exercise, walk, see the wildlife including majestic black swans and the turtles. The Japanese love seeing the black swans.

BBQs, playgrounds, massive areas of green grass, all so close to the city. Great place for any event or to get some exercise or quiet. I used to spend every Saturday morning training with mates on the grass near the Dodd St carpark, with the sound of the nearby birds in the background, and a cool breeze blowing over the... More

If you want to see black swans, have a nice walk around a lake and a park with shady spots then you can do worse than come here. The freeway goes down one side of it though, which is a shame.
