“Beautiful recreational park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Hyde Park is one of those places that is very under rated, that only the locals know about. It wont be in many tourist guides, but if you want a nice place for a picnic or somewhere to take the kids for a play and a stroll, here is as good as it gets. It is a fairly large park, with well kept gardens and a lake in the middle. Ducks and other birds frequent the lake and its nice to spend some time on a park bench by the lake feeding them. My one qualm was that sometimes (in between council visits, no doubt) the lake can look a little unclean, with the occasional bit of rubbish ruining the fairytale feel. However, generally the park has a great vibe as the trees are huge and provide alot of shade and add a beautiful, foresty atmosphere to the park. There is a well equipped children's playground on one side and clean, well maintained concrete pathways through all the major thoroughfares.

There are no shopping centers, food outlets or otherwise in the immediate area, but if you take Vincent street eastward you will run into Beaufort Street, which is the hub of Mt Lawley - a suburb well known for its fairly bohemian vibe and there are plenty of supermarkets, cafes and restaurants to pick and choose from. Overall a lovely park and one that is often referenced by the locals over the more touristy Kings Park (although go there too, if for nothing else but the view across the city).

“A tranquil city refuge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Hyde Park is a short 20 minute walk straight down William street, heading north from the Horse Shoe Bridge. It is in the classical European style of public gardens and its peaceful surrounds are loved by the community. The walk down there also gives you an opportunity to see the diverse range of shops along William Street.
Pick up some food along the way and enjoy a picnic under the English plane trees.

“Its massive”

What a park. You could get lost here. So much so that one park keeper referred to an area as the out back
