Walking here sometimes I've seen turtles. Other times the Swans and or ducks with their ducklings. The paths and jettys are taken care of no problems. Can have a picnic to and watch the swans swim by.

Catch the Joondalup line train from Perth and alight at Leederville station. Walk about ten minutes east along Grantham Street and you will be there. Enjoy and take a drink with you.
