Just 5 minutes from the Perth City centre you will find this nice Lake to walk around. Dogs are ok to take. Has some playground equipment for children also.

It's close to the Freeway, but extensive planting of native species over the past two decades has muted the noise of traffic on the eastern side, and greatly improved the appeal of the place. The historic southern section with its Norfolk Pines and Weeping Willows is being maintained, though. there is a good dual use walking/cycling/running (okay, not dual, tri-... More

Great gardens and scenery. Ducks and Swans very playful. Yes snakes around (Tiger), but stick to the trails and path. Great for families and picnics.

A friend of mine and I dropped by to walk around the lake after the gym. It was a lovely walk that was flat! That was really nice! We live in an area that is quite hilly and it was a nice change of pace. There is a lot of birds (many black swans!) to keep it interesting as well.... More

I don't know why it took me so long to visit this lake when I live nearby (although I just moved here). This lake is beautiful and I can see why it's popular with walkers on the weekend. It has a great walking track around the outside of the lake with neatly constant views of the lake. Great to visit... More

A decent long walk with plenty of wildlife and some great views of the city skyline. Watch out for snakes though, saw a couple last time.

The reserve's proximity to Leederville makes it perfect for a pre-brunch power walk or sunset stroll. There are also restrooms, a playground, at least three water fountains and a few parking areas. Most of the paths seem accessible too, so there's no excuse not to get your inner-city nature fix!

This is a must see for tourists. Walk around the lake and take photos of the swans and ducks. See if you can spot a stray tortoise. A couple of good lookouts around the lake. Lots of trees and a couple of play equipment areas for children. Terrific place for a bbq or picnic. Want some exercise? then this pace... More

I regularly go for a walk around Lake Monger. The walkways are well maintained. An enjoyable place to be in the evenings
