About this park
It’s a pretty spot to relax and chill with family and friends.
The river is sheltered, calm and perfect for a cooling swim in summer or a paddle on your kayak. Alternatively, just sit under a shady tree and watch the boats go by.
Meals, snacks and drinks can be purchased at the Bayside Kitchen café, or you can reserve a place at the Matilda Bay Restaurant for food, wine and functions. Free electric barbecues are also provided.
The Swan River is home to about 20 dolphins which can sometimes be seen from the shore. There are a variety of water birds including pelicans, swans, ducks, terns, herons and cormorants.
The stunning backdrop of the Swan River and Perth city skyline make this place a popular site for social functions such as staff Christmas parties, birthdays and weddings. For all bookings enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
