“Free and Close to the CBD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The water smells weird but it is great for a picnic at the park for Australia Day or even going on a weekend date.

The location is about 5-10 minutes from the city centre so there is a good variety of food (mainly Asian) for those who want to sit in the park and relax.

Children can play on the playground and recently the government/council has added a water playground.

“It's just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I don't like the removal of the water playground and what they've replaced it with is stupid. I think this trend of removing all possible potential water hazards is going overboard considering how long they've been there without incident. Oh and parents - watch your kids - FFS its not hard, just be responsible.

“GREENWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I love the greenery that was planned as Hyde Park 100 years ago.
Such thoughtful design, that will hopefully be extended southward on Palmerston St as a Greenway that will pass through Russel Square linking Vincent to the C.B.D via a Pedestrian GREENWAY.. In France such routes are called Trottiors, and Motorists are BANNED...

“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Hidden just off a main road that heads into Perth. Situated in Perth's outer CBD.
Two lakes are the central feature to this park. The park is so full of native flora and fauna that you'll forget you're almost walking distance from the city.
Large gardens and grassed areas with plenty of space for picnics and BBQs. Plenty of things to keep the kids busy: playgrounds and water fountains.
There are also plenty of walking tracks to keep you fit.

“Just beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Hyde Park is one of Perth's hidden jewells. Take a picnic, stroll around the lakes and play in the playgrounds and under the free water fountains with your kids. Of course, you can always just relax on the grass too.
