Kent St Weir / Canning River Park

Nestled beside the Canning River in Wilson is a great park technically called the Canning River Regional Park. Everyone seems to know it as the Kent St Weir.

The Park contains a playground, lots of grass, paths to ride bikes and scooters around, and a bridge across the river. The bridge is over the top of the Kent St Weir, which holds back the river water in some way. Over the bridge are some great walking and riding paths through the bush. There are toilets and BBQs in the park.

The playground is a traditional older style steel frame one, with no shade sails unfortunately. It is also not fenced, and especially as it is close to the river you will need to keep an eye on little kids. There is sand on the ground.

The Canning River Cafe is a new cafe in the park, in a new building which also houses the Canning River Eco Education Centre. The cafe does breakfast and lunch, good takeaway coffee in eco-cups, and icecreams and snacks.

The Castledare Miniature Railway has a station at the Park (the other Castledare station is not in this park but near by  - they run miniature train rides once a month, details on their website.

Address -  Kent St Wilson, corner of Queens Park Road.
