This park has had a re-do in August 2014 with new play structures added and picnic areas. It has been designed as a recreational area suitable for people of all ages and abilities supported by Variety WA and hence the new name, Variety Place.

The area is mostly constructed with natural materials, with bark chips to provide a soft fall.

Activities include:

  • Fort
  • Climbing nets
  • Climbing logs and rocks
  • Tunnels
  • Bridges with hiding areas underneath
  • Metal maze
  • Stepping stones with balancing planks.
  • Jarrah logs, some of which have carvings of various insects on them.
  • Saw Avenue amphitheatre (kid’s shows held here during summer events season)
