This is a wonderful park, with beautiful recreational areas and an incredible pathway around the lake. There is lots of parking, and easy access to some of the best urban birding in Australia!

Catch the Joondalup line train from Perth and alight at Leederville station. Walk about ten minutes east along Grantham Street and you will be there. Enjoy and take a drink with you.

I suspect re-creating a natural habitat would attract Swans. Other than that check out the WA government Parks and Wildlife website which may provide your answer.
