Bardon Park is located on Fourth Avenue in Maylands, close to the Maylands Yacht Club, and is considered one of the most picturesque parks in Perth.
Bardon Park has a nature playground and is an ideal family destination. The park is a popular location for Australia Day activities, as well as a vantage point to watch the fireworks.
Bardon Park offers something for everyone:
- Wide pathways perfect for walks or bike rides
- Picnic and barbeque facilities
- Bench seating
- Incredible views of the Swan River.
The playground features a rock garden which illustrates the six Noongar seasons of Birak:
- Birak - first summer
- Bunuru - second summer
- Djeran - autumn
- Makuru - winter
- Djilba - first spring
- Kambarang - second spring.
The Bardon Park Riverside Restoration Group was formed by nearby residents concerned about the weeds in the park.
The City of Bayswater has been working closely with this group to manage the issue.
