We’re so lucky to have so many amazing parks and playgrounds here in Perth, and we’re also very lucky to have the weather to enjoy them most of the year round. Some are very popular and others are little hidden treasures tucked away in Perth suburbs.
Floreat Beach Foreshore Playground
This is a great shaded, sand playground right on the beach surrounded by a grassed area with picnic tables. Even better still, there’s a great cafe right next door called The Kiosk which serves amazing food and coffee. This is a great destination during Summer as the kids can have a play, a swim and then you can have brunch or lunch. Happy days!
Ivey Watson Playground Kings Park (Stickybeaks)
This is one of our all time favourite spots. Stickybeaks is a really good cafe which serves coffee, muffins, lunch and ice cream. The playground itself is really large, fenced off, under shade cloth and includes a swing set, a maze, slides, a massive Pirate Ship in sand, an undercover play area, toilets and a smaller fenced play area for younger children with soft fall, a sand pit and a swing. There are also plenty of grassy areas where you can pop a picnic blanket down while your kids run around and have fun.
Lake Jualbup Shenton Park
This is a beautiful sprawling park with lots of big trees set around a lake, with a fantastic playground under shade cloth set in sand. There’s also a great cafe called Excelsior just a five minute walk away so Mummy can enjoy a coffee while the kids run and play. It’s win win!
Hobart Street Park North Perth
This is a smaller, fenced playground under shade cloth set in sand with swings and slides surrounded by a grassed area. We always take a bucket and spade to this playground along with a picnic blanket. Hobart Street cafe is just across the road, so I can do a quick coffee stop before we have some fun in the sun!
South Perth Foreshore Playground Mends Street
This playground is located at the end of the South Perth jetty, opposite Coco’s. There’s a great little cafe called Marquay where you can get a coffee, toilets right next to the playground and Mends Street is right across the road which has lots of great little cafe’s and shops.
There are so many more parks and playgrounds we want to explore this Spring and Summer – we’d love to hear your suggestions!
