Chang­ing face of fun in the park

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

DO you re­mem­ber climb­ing the logs at May Drive Park­land in glo­ri­ous Kings Park in the 1960s?

They were a fun – although prob­a­bly con­sid­ered haz­ardous by some by to­day’s stan­dards – way of get­ting to the lit­tle is­land in the mid­dle of the large pond.

This scene cer­tainly looks dif­fer­ent to­day.

The logs have been re­placed the park in 2002.

It’s one of the many jew­els of Kings Park that have cer­tainly changed over the years, yet re­mained a pop­u­lar play­ground and pic­nic spot.

Do you have a photo you’d like to share that evokes a spe­cial rec­ol­lec­tion? You might be tuck­ing into a muf­fin with the kids at Stick­y­beaks Cafe or ad­mir­ing the na­tive plants at the Botanic Gar­den.

Wher­ever you are in Perth, what­ever you are do­ing, we want to see it.
