Playgrounds and Parks @ Lathlain and Carlisle
Located in Lathlain this park caters for all ages with three playgrounds. The large nature playground has a boat, fort, swings, ropes, bridges, musical play, stepping and balance logs - all with lots of room to move!
A ropes playground with a spinner and a double flying fox (7am-7pm) caters for older children.
The path around the park is designed for little riders and has traffic signs and speed humps. There s a half basketball court and a fully fenced shaded traditional playground near the picnic tables, barbecues and public toilets. And who wouldn't want to wait for the bus at this bus stop!
And the outdoor ping pong table by Hosae is a work of art whichever way you look at it!
Across the road from the park you will find a small precinct which houses Kettle Cafe and Laika Coffee so you can grab a cuppa. There is parking in the cafe precinct or in bays at the school on Keyes Street.
Tucked in behind the West Coast Eagles training ground at Mineral Resources Park this little nature based playground offers a sense of serenity. The northern end has a skate park and to the east you have access to cafes in the precinct which links to Rayment Park. This little park may not be one to head to for a day out but if Rayment Park across the road is too busy you could head here for a quiet play on the hammocks, dome cubbies and rope nets. It is also a nice little stroll from Rayment Park and there is some street art and public art to look at along the way.
Tom Wright Park - Koolbardi Park
Across Roberts Road from Mineral Resources Park (West Coast Eagles training ground) this park has lots of benches, barbecues and green spaces. The kids will enjoy playing on the bowling balls and scooting around the perimeter pathways. The nature playground is shaded by mature trees and features a pirate ship, a water and sand table and dome cubbies scattered in the bush. There is also an enclosed dog park here so your fur baby can come along too. There is a small skate park and tennis courts to hire.
On our way to Tom Wright Park we drove around the block looking for parking (on the eastern edge on Planet Street) and in doing so came across the street art along the small shopping strip on Archer Street.
John Bissett Reserve
We stopped here in search of a mural and an outdoor ping pong table but sadly the mural has been painted over and the ping pong table art was severely degraded. This is a large reserve with a small traditional playground and a small metal skate park. Not really worth the visit as a play space!
