About this park
Manning Reserve was originally bought by Charles Manning in 1860 and named after his family. Charles’ son Lucius built his daughter Azelia and her new husband a homestead here in 1905, which was later restored by the Cockburn City Council in 1983. Today the Azelia Ley Homestead is open to the public and contains a fascinating look at what colonial life was like.
The City of Cockburn manages this area which is in the northern part of the Beeliar Regional Park.
