Hyde Park, North Perth

Nestled among the hustle and bustle of North Perth’s busy streets is Hyde Park, an inner city sanctuary with lots on offer for families. In a nutshell, you’ll find water play during the warmer months, local wildlife, a cool playground for the kids and even a lovely spot to get married!



Hyde Park is the kind of place I wish I lived closer to, with its gorgeous lake to wander around and huge, old Moreton Bay fig trees, which provide lots of natural shade. You’ll find lots of different birds and wildlife living in the lake, including turtles, swans, ducks and water birds - watch your lunch! I saw a water bird picking from an unguarded picnic rug.



Of course, the first place I headed to with my toddler was the playground. There are two playgrounds in the park – a big one and a little one. The big one is located on the corner of Vincent and Throssell Street and is closest to the Wedding Gazebo – yep, the place to get married! It is also closest to the water playground, which opens from November.

The smaller playground is located on the other side of the park on William Street, near to Chu Bakery, a great place to grab a coffee or snack if you are on that side of the park. There are barbeques and picnic areas throughout the park. When we visited on a Saturday, there was even an ice cream truck parked up outside the big playground!



On the side of the larger playground you will find toilets and baby chance facilities. There are pram and wheelchair friendly paths all around the park.



The bigger of the two playgrounds is quite good for children aged up to eight or nine. The main play structure is suitable for children who are steady on their feet, while there are cubbies, walkways and slides for older children to explore. My ten-year-old nephew had seen enough after half an hour or so, but younger children may but up a fight when it comes to leaving time.



The playground is also accessible, with accessible swing and even a liberty swing. There are log steps, sand play, including a mini digger, a rope-climbing frame and a little enclosed spinning cup. The smaller of the two playgrounds has climbing equipment, a tripod swing and sensory play equipment.

There is no café close to the big playground, but Fitzgerald Street is only a short walk away and yields a range of destinations for takeaway coffee, snacks and meals, along with dine-in options. We easily found free, three-hour parking along Vincent Street – plenty of time for a play in the playground and a wander around the lake.



If you need an inner city option without the hustle and bustle of Perth, Hyde Park is the place to go – it’s shaded, cool and is certainly a top spot for families.
