Been going to Kent St Weir cycle tracks for 3yrs use to really enjoy it, however lately its become dangerous for pedestrians & cyclists. Its not uncommon to see people on electric scooters, bikes & electric skate boards riding excessively fast close to pedestrians & young families. Last week I saw a hoon drinking a Stubby whilst doing 30klm hr on his electric skate board, he nearly cleaned up an elderly lady. Time to ban them from the walking tracks!

So much to do here! The bmx track was perfect for our beginners. Then a range of different cycle paths, schooling mullet just at weir, playground, castledare train track and launch spots for canoes. The cafe was very busy so unless you're willing to wait over 30 mins byo. Are BBQ facilities too. Kids loved it.

I walk my dingo here almost every day, living nearby. The scenery of the Canning river is breathtakingly magnificent and the park itself has so much to offer. There's a playground, a dog-friendly cafe, a bmx track circuit, an eco centre, a huge oval for fun and games and not to mention a huge variety of paths to take to get amongst nature. I love it here.

Kent Street Weir is one of those little treasures that locals often just don’t know about, yet it’s right under your nose. We lived in the area for over 40 years and it was only when we celebrated our youngest grandson’s 1st birthday there, did we discover it.

Kent Street Weir is a large beautiful grassed park area running along one side of the Canning River in Wilson. Cross the bridge over the Weir and you are in a wetlands reserve.

The park has large trees to provide shade, rotundas and public gas and electric ‘free’ BBQs. If you’re not into BBQs there is also a sizable café at the car park (parking can be a challenge) which is very busy. There is also plenty of play equipment for children. Canoes are 'for hire'

If that is not enough, the Castledare Miniature Rail Road has a station at one end of the park. That in itself is a must do on a visit to this area

Maybe I need to explore a little bit more, or I’m just not into the water sports that you could do here - there was a bit of construction and maintenance work going on when I visited so the walking path next to the river was not accessible.

I found the other side of the river (Canning Regional Park) much more pleasant with walking trails through the bush.

We enjoy a return trip to Kent Street Weir where there is plenty of parking, easy access to the reserve, and also to the café. The reserve has scattered gums and open grass areas, play equipment, and is a connection point for walking tracks along the Canning. One walking track goes across the weir. There are several lookout platforms too, and canoeing facilities. This is a good place for a family picnic.

Sixty years ago I used to swim in the Weir and, a few years later, I would take groups of school children for nature tours.
I was quite amazed at the transformation when I saw the extensive park lands, the children's play equipment, the boardwalks and the education centre (the latter would have been much appreciated when I had school visits).
Our visit was during the school holidays so, not unexpectedly, the facilities were in full use and their were children splashing in the shallow waters and canoeists enjoying the waters. The cafe situated there offers friendly service.
It is easy to look back and wish for years gone by, but the transformation here is a credit to all involved in the planning and establishment of a great facility.

Kent Street Weir has recently been remodelled. The park is a lovely setting for a family picnic. Lot of parking is available, toilets, and a children’s playground and a cafe overlooking the park. There are scenic walks that can be taken either side of the Canning River. In spring and summer, if you walk in the bush, beware that there are snakes and look out for them. We love the Weir and return time and time again. Kent Street Weir is always beautiful no matter the season and no more so than at sunset. Take the camera.

Perth has many lovely places to visit, and this weir is one of these. Good parking and easy access, and a lovely café close by. However, we come after just having breakfast! The easy path down to the weir winds through lawned areas with trees, and the river views from the broad weir are delightful. Well made walking and cycling tracks along the Canning follow through here, but there is a short walk across the weir to a secluded gazebo with seating just by the river. All very pleasant.
