Create an itinerary including Hyde Park
Enjoy the shaded pathways of Hyde Park, where you can jog, rollerblade, bike, picnic, or simply enjoy a few quiet moments with a good book and a cup of coffee. European settlers turned this swampy zone into a public park in 1897, creating an urban green space that still plays an important social and ecological role. The park hosts frequent music festivals and live performances, and is a popular venue for weddings and family photographs. Also notable for its mature trees, the area is lined with figs, pines, jacarandas, cedars, and several indigenous eucalyptuses, some of which are over a century old. Two lakes located within the park attract a wide variety of birdlife, which includes ducks, coots, pelicans, and swans. To visit Hyde Park on your trip to Perth, use our Perth trip planner.

  • We brought some lunch to have a picnic here since it was a nice day. We ate near the water playground area just by the grassy bank. The park was quite large and fairly busy, particularly the playground. I enjoyed walking along the two lakes of the park, watching the birds swimming about as well as people watching for a bit. There were also a few information boards around the park talking about the history or the animals in the park. It was nice to wander around and rest on grassy patches or benches when required. It was a nice park to visit with nice views and quite a nice atmosphere of everyone enjoying themselves. Definitely worth bringing things over for a picnic.
  • It's more than a family Park. Photographer can easily find spots to take beautiful photos. Walkways around the park for jogging, walking and cycling. Tables and chairs to have a rest. Playgrounds for different age group. Lots of shades area for lying down. Two lakes with ducks and birds. Coffee and food trucks...
