The entrance to Bold Park is near Perry Lakes in the suburb of City Beach.
Bold Park beautifully situated between the city of Perth and the Indian Ocean. All trails are for walkers only, no bicycles allowed but you could ride to Perry Lakes and park your bike there.
Today I took the Tuart Walk as well as parts of the Zamia and Banksia Trails.
A couple of cockatoos kept an eye of me as I made my way up to the entrance to the park.
This was a beautiful walk on a tranquil, warm spring day. I would occasionally come across one or two walkers but for the most part the trails were very quiet.
At times it was easy to imagine that I was well away in the countryside.
However stunning views of the city occasionally reminded me that I was less than 10 kms from centre of Perth.
Further on up the Zamia trail I caught glimpses of the Indian Ocean. It was astonishing to realise that some beautiful Perth beaches were only about a kilometer away.
Along the way the trails were flanked by beautiful flowers.
Many people go to Kings Park. It is truly magnificent. But don’t neglect Bold Park. It is a great place to take a relaxing stroll, absorb the natural surroundings and replenish your sense of well-being! Highly recommended!!
