“pleasant enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Its small but nice, on the river. Some shade and popular for picnics.

There are probably better parks to be if you aren't interested in casinos (e.g. ones without a whopping big casino behind you) and if you are interested in casinos I doubt you'd be wasting your time being in this park.

“Have a go day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Recently attended the annual Have a Go Day expo here and it was wonderful. Burswood Park offers a excellent location and a great setting with ample parking and lots of areas and space to enjoy. It also has the bonus of beautiful views of the city and is close to Crown Perth.

“It’s nice and quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Generally speaking, there is not much happening at Burswood Park. But if you are looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet, that’s one of the places to go. With the Swan River on one side, a small lake on the other, you have black swans, ducks and other water birds as company. There are BBQ facilities and kids playing ground, it’s a perfect place for pick nicks.

“Just a park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Burswood Park is overshadowed by The Crown complex. It has some statues, play equipment, paths and grassed areas, but not much more. Perhaps its best feature is that it is beside the Swan River and one can watch the water traffic go by.

“Burswood Park worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went to see the renovations since crown took over. The casino is the usual blingy, noisy environment, and had expected more of the food court. The Park though, did not disappoint. We luckily had good weather and the stroll around the park was interesting, with its bronze sculptures and fountain; while there was also plenty of play equipment for the kids. The water provides a nice backdrop, and it was a short drive from the centre of Perth.
Unfortunately the renovations are still in progress, so you need to negotiate barriers, and the parking wasn't clear, so we paid $15. Walks and play equipment could be better signposted.
