A recreation of the great outdoors in a city park

On one hand, there are so many great places in WA where you can mess about in the real nature. So I'm inherently biased against the man-made replicas. BUT I have to admit this... read more

On one hand, there are so many great places in WA where you can mess about in the real nature. So I'm inherently biased against the man-made replicas. BUT I have to admit this one is well done and brings the great outdoors to the middle of the city. Early October all the flowers were out making it pretty to... More

If you have young children this is a must do 'mini' park that is tucked away beside one of the main car park at the back of the Kings Park visitor center (May Drive). Its very well laid out and allows children to get really hands on with nature, with plenty of opportunities to climb and explore. Our children loved... More

This place is amazing as it allows children to discover and explore nature. I would suggest downloading a map off the kings Park website so you dont miss anything. Also take shoes that are easy to take off as there is a large stream for children to explore.

I was not sure what to expect after visiting some of the other awesome playgrounds in Kings Park but the Naturescape was just what we needed on that day. More laid back nature exploration, bush paths which I love, creek complete with fallen log bridge, a little cave to keep cool in, rocks to move around and stack, many landscape... More

The steel structures scattered around the Naturescape made the stroll around very interesting. Great for kids.

This playground is great for young children to play, explore nature, get dirty and have great fun. There are lawns for picnics, and all the family will enjoy this great spot. The only difficulty is getting the children away to move on!

Good old fashioned fun where no-one looks at a screen. Plenty for the children to discover. They were absolutely exhausted by the time we left.

This is a beautiful natural play area within King's park where children can really get wet and muddy if they want. There are lots of separate areas such as ponds, climbing frames, climbing ropes etc with a number of paths. It is is reasonably safe as there is only one entrance where there is a member of staff permanently. On... More
