“Popular park for weddings”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

On the edge of the main central business district of Perth. Popular spot for garden weddings and the occasional picnic. Although edged on two sides by busy city roads, it is possible to ignore the surrounding noise and find a few tranquil gardens. Maintained by the City of Perth local government, it was named after a long-standing City Councillor. Residents of nearby apartments probably count their blessings that this park has been there long before their residences were built. Not sure how safe this park would be at night. Could attract homeless people.

“Not a Great Place”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

All the times that I have been there it has been inundated with drunken yobbos who curse you and then beg for money. Perhaps I went at the wrong times but as it was near where I worked it was easy to get to and sit for a while.

“Small but lovely”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Even though the Harold Boas Gardens only occupy a relatively small block, they are quite lovely. Nice open lawns separate colourful garden beds and immense trees. A series of lakes and streams intersect the gardens and provide a nice centrepiece. A great place to enjoy a picnic and relax.
