Canning River Regional Park
Extending six kilometres along the Canning River between the Riverton and Nicholson Road bridges, the Canning River Regional Park is a significant reserve.
Covering approximately 266 hectares, the park is unique, encompassing conservation values and recreational opportunities all within a highly-urbanised environment.
First set aside for public use in the 19th century, the park consists of large areas of parkland for public recreation and extensive wetlands managed for the protection of biodiversity.
Comprising estuarine and riverine ecologies in addition to woodland and wetland regions, it is home to more than 100 species of bird and a widely diverse range of flora and fauna.
