We have been to Kings Park many times over the years but we never quite explored it from a parent/ child’s point of view until now. I have to say that it is an awesome place to spend the morning with the kids! We also intentionally planned our trip to Kings Park Lotterywest Family Park on a Tuesday morning, in hopes of avoiding any weekend family crowd.
We came prepared for a ‘picnic’ with picnic mats and sand toys. The food issue was settled at the Stickybeaks Café which was located within the Kings Park Lotterywest Family Park area. We ordered fries, muffins and pies (yum yum!) and set up shop on the grass. Come early and take your pick of any spot in the park!
Once we had satisfied our rumbling tummies with breakfast, the kids headed off to explore the park. There were tons to play and do in the park, from baby friendly swings for Bella to sand pits and pirate ships for Jah. Little ‘obstacle courses’ which Jah self created and imagined crocs in the sand/’water’ to fire truck and airplane rides which both JahBella got to enjoy together.
The traffic at the park started to pick up at around 10am to 11am even though it was a weekday. Parents started strolling in with their little ones and the certain areas started to get a little crowded. But it was all good and I was more than happy for the kids to learn to share and co-exist with other little kids.
The area is really big so even though Jah would normally not run too far off without me, I still made sure that we were always by his side. When the day started to warm up alittle towards noon time, the café and our mat were not too far off for us to settle down and enjoy a cool ice-cream to end off the morning.
We enjoyed that relaxing time so much that Joel asked if we had sufficient time on our itinerary to make another trip there. Sadly, our itinerary was pack so this is definitely on our to-go list again when we next visit Perth.
