This is a nice waterfront park near the Swan River. Stopped here today with my daughter to see some Pelicans. She quite enjoyed it and it's probably a nice place to hang out.

I was a little disappointed as you pay to get in the gate then a mixed plate was $22 which limited you to try any of the other stalls, I thought it was over rated to be honest, been there done that won't bother again

I bought my niece here for a walk and play on the playground, it's a really nice spot. Nice views of the river and plenty of room for kids to run around and play. The playground is quite good and there's usually an ice cream van there too. Good place to bike ride up the river as well.

We stopped just to walk along the river. The casino looks huge from the river bank but if you just forget the city and traffic etc you can soon just get into the feeling that you are in the country while in the middle of a city. Was a few people running and ladies with prams enjoying the quiet. Ideal... More

Burswood park is clean and in a central location. Many people come here to begin their runs around the swan river over the Causeway and Graham Farmer Fwy bridge. It also has a playground for kids, some fitness equipment and a large collection of birdlife around.

I like Burswood Park for the views and the paved walkway alongside the Swan River. It gets popular but not too crowded with bike riders, runners and walkers. Plenty of grass area too. Parking can be a challenge at the moment due to roadworks in the area, however it's still worth the effort for a few hours of relaxation and... More
