“An oasis in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Whether at Kings Park for A Day on the Green Concert series, Anzac Day service, Australia Day fireworks, a picnic, a day of photography or for exercise, it is a fabulous place. Beautiful views of the city and the Swan River, day or night, and beautiful, clean gardens.

“Beautiful park”

Great walking trails, well manicured and a great facilities..I ran early and late at night and felt very safe as there are lots of people around.. Maps of the actual walkways could be a little more readable

“Must Visit Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

In order to see the best views of Perth I would recommend that you go to Kings Park-either walk (its doable), take taxi or get on the hop on hop off bus (last bus leaves the Park approx 16.00)
Its an interesting Park in its own right but it commannds a fantastic position overlooking the Perth landscape.
A quiet oasis of calm away from traffic noise etc

A real botanical gem with views. See the glass bridge! Free bus service downtown. The views of town and the Swan river are awesome.
