I love this park and come here often to run the 7km honour drive. Until today I was surprised by people's disrespect for the park after regularly seeing rubbish in the bush beside the paths. My son and I would come to pick some up in the school holidays sometimes. Today I walked the loop and bought a lovely coffee to enjoy the slower pace. After a kilometre the coffee was done and I looked for a bin to do the right thing. To my surprise I walked that entire 7km and did not sight a single rubbish bin. Strange that kings park would make it so difficult to keep the place beautiful.

What can one say about one of the best parks around?

Beautifully located overlooking Perth's CBD, Kings Park is an uplifting place to visit especially in Spring.

When we visited, the kangaroo paws were at their very best - gorgeous - and the verticordias were also stunning. There were also lots of other native plants flowering. We spent ages wandering through the numerous gardens that showcased various regions of Western Australia. An amazing range of plants. It really is a very good botanic garden.

There are lots of lawn areas available for resting or picnicking. A café and a takeaway place are also set up for tourists while Frasers Restaurant is also there for those with a bit more money to spend.

We also spent a lot of time wandering the pathways that meandered through the untouched bush areas. Very well done and it did give a sense of what our bushland look like. The pathways are well defined and easy to walk on especially the metal ones we chances upon. Give it a go.

Highly recommended.

I've traveled to a few, and this by far, is the best. I love the city side. Tall trees lots of shade and plenty of places to explore.

Spent a very relaxing couple of hours enjoying the many varieties of flora that is currently in bloom. A credit to the gardeners and volunteers for the magnificent displays. Great to see works completed on areas under construction/renovation during our visit earlier in the year. Lovely area when sun shines and no rainfall.

Visitors from outside Western Australia are likely to find the State's native vegetation, as found in in King's Park, to be fascinating. Some of Western Australia's wildflowers, such as Kangaroo Paws, are now well-known and now grow in Eastern States' gardens. The Everlastings provide a multicoloured carpet of flowers. Grasstrees are quite unique, they look like native bush-dwellers. For those who interested in WA's native flora, the native orchids may be of most interest. The garden provides examples of plants from the State's varying climatic zones. In the background you will see Perth's ever-expanding skyline,

Absolutely gorgeous park with fantastic views over the city of Perth. Lovely paths and elevated walkways through different sections. Colourful wildflowers when we were there with good information from the Centre for best viewing. Cafe and shop very good. The War Memorial completes this beautiful park land. A must visit and there is a free bus from the city.

We visited here when we were last in Perth about 15 years ago and I think there has been a bit of work carried out since then. The views from the lookout over the Swan River and Perth are amazing and the park itself is very well maintained, there were gardeners there at the time tidying in some spots. There are two impressive War Memorials and a cafe that was very busy at the time. The park looks popular with walkers, runners, family groups and there were two or three walking tours in progress when we were there.
