About this place
Located off Mundaring Road, Fred Jacoby Park is surrounded by forest and consists of landscaped gardens and trees planted from around the world.
Fred Jacoby developed the gardens in the early 1900s. He was a tireless worker and organised the building of the Goldfields Weir Hotel (now the Mundaring Hotel). Mr Jacoby died in 1954 and his daughter Mrs Elfreda Devenish, donated the land around Fred Jacoby Park to the people of Western Australia.
