Since the 1970s considerable effort has been made to improve amenity, access and environmental issues.
The South Perth City Council considers the park, or parts of it to be suitable for hire, and it has hosted numerous events since its improvements and landscaping.
As of December 2015 it is a very regularly used location for cyclists, runners and dog walkers around the river, with links to a circuit that continues around the whole of Perth Water, utilising pedestrian facilities on the Narrows Bridge and The Causeway.

Great park with lots going on. Perfect for a picnic with plenty of BBQs table settings and often food trucks of an evening (see South Perth Streets). Plenty of space to run around and play sports, walk your dog, or even have a swim at the beach (if you're game).
A great place to walk singly or with partners while enjoying the panoramic views of City of Perth skyline and Swan River up close. There is always some activities including dogs having exercise and games on the park. Family gathering for BBQ or enjoying a pleasant evening with the weekend food truck Funcats is a popular water sport for the activity seekers. Occasionally you get special events like Croquet and Concerts. The Big Wedgie water splash is currently being held through to January. A safe and peaceful environment.
