Mueller Park Play Space - Subiaco

Updated: Dec 9, 2023

Mueller Park is a wonderful 4.3 ha green space in Subiaco between Roberts and Subiaco Roads. It has long avenues of mature trees with some of the WA peppermint trees dating to the 1940's! The shady trees and straight paths invite kids on scooters and bikes to explore in a safe environment.

The shaded fully fenced and gated all abilities playground is particularly well suited to toddlers and smaller children with it's low level play features. The play space has a sensory focus with many musical play elements, speaker pipes, jungle drums and a giant xylophone. There is a small climbing frame, bird's nest swing and a sand play area.

There is water play.

The major feature is the large ramped treehouse walk with a short double slide.

There are several picnic benches and barbecues and outside the fenced play area there is a public toilet, a basketball hoop and plenty of wide open green spaces for picnics and ball games.

Paid street parking is available along Hamilton Street and Roberts Road. The playground is closest to Coghlan Road and is adjaccent to Bob Hawke College so parking may be problematic at school drop and pick up times. West Leederville Train Station is within walking distance.

This area is being redveloped following the demolition of Subiaco Oval and Princess Margaret Children's Hospital. You can see the old chimney stack from Princess Margaret Hospital from the corner of Roberts Road and Hamilton Street. A new artwork is being painted on the chimney stack (Dec 2023) by Momo and Abdul Abdullah. Called Here Together it celebrates the communities sense of connectedness.

At the junction of the footpaths in the centre of the park you will find the Kambarang scuplture by Jarni Mc Guire alongside a plaque commemorating Baron Sir Ferdinand Jakob Heinrich von Mueller (1825-1896) for whom the park is named. Von Mueller was a renowned botanist and in his time probably the most renowned scientist in the Southern Hemisphere.
