“Escape to the country in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Beautiful big lake, lovely walks, swans, bike tracks, a piece of heaven in the heart of a growing city. Just love it and a great place to take the family for a picnic.

“Beautiful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

A Beautiful lake to walk or ride around. Beware if you feed the swans they can get aggressive. Do not leave anything of value in your car as there are thieves who specialise in this area. They arrive on a motorbike with helmet so noone recognises them, watch you leave your car, break the window and take whatever they like, and leave on their bike. They are very hard to catch, and frequent this spot as it is an easy target. It is a shame as this is a very popular lake/ park. Great spot for an outdoor occasion like a family gathering. Lots of shade available.

“Absolutely beautiful place for a walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I grew up around lake monger and spend much of my childhood playing and having adventures around it. It is a classic natural spot only 5 mins form the city and has a great track around it for a walk or run. Much nicer than Lake Gwellup or Dog Swamp.

“A haven of peace and a nature reserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

As you approach the lake, signs on the main roads warn of ducks and wildlife crossing....and you see cars stopping on a dual carriageway to allow the wild life to cross.
The walk around the lake is 3.5kms. We had a sunny day - as most are in Perth - and enjoyed the views of the city in the distance across the lake. The lake is a conservation area. Several car parks and cycle tracks as well.

“Great running track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I used to do the mother's day fun run every year around Lake Monger and was devastated when it was moved elsewhere. It's a beautiful spot for a walk but don't bring bread for the birds as you will see a re-enactment of the Hitchcock movie!
