We have only a few days left with Mlle, our younger daughter, before she heads off back to London. On New Year’s Eve we had a lovely walk followed by morning tea at beautiful Kings Park. I wrote a piece about this lovely area of bushland and park quite recently (see here) but that only covered a small part of it. Here are some photos of our walk round the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, one of the park’s most popular attractions, which opened in 2003. The highlight is a large bridge, arching high above the eucalyptus trees below. Wending round the marri forest, native flora and with stunning views across the Swan and Canning rivers, the walkway is an idyllic place for a stroll. The trail leads you through a water garden, banksia garden with explanations of the heritage and significance of the area along the way. Entry to the walkway is free, though there is an optional gold coin donation box at the entrance – all funds go to supporting Friends Of Kings Park who encourage community involvement in the maintenance and preservation of the parkland.
Wishing everyone a happy, prosperous and peaceful 2016!
