While the northern hemisphere is putting the finishing touches to summer, down here in Perth we are just getting the feeling that summer is approaching. Clear skies and warmer days are a sure sign that spring is well and truly here, like I mentioned recently with my spring tip to visit Lake Monger.
On the topic of spring, it’s also a perfect time to get out and about in Perth’s numerous parks. I love this photo – it’s in Kings Park, and the man having a rest there is doing something I must admit I also love to do. The lawn is lusciously soft – unusual for Perth, where our water restrictions mean most of us have dry, crunchy lawn – and the surroundings are beautiful. But as you can see, there are also plenty of other things going on in Kings Park, like the school group visiting in the background.
If you are keen to visit some of Perth’s most beautiful parks, check out my Guide to Perth Parks for enough great parks to last you a whole week in Perth – probably more, because you’ll want to keep going back to them. Have you come across any other great Perth parks? Let me know in the comments. And if you haven’t been to Perth yet, then let me know what kind of activities you like to get up to in parks while you’re travelling.
