With around 450 hectares of public parklands and conservation reserves across the City of Canning, there are an abundance of quality sporting facilities, passive recreational areas, playgrounds and cycle ways helping to increase your health and wellbeing.
There are also important remnant bushland and wetlands within the City, providing a natural habitat for flora and fauna.
Of special significance is the beautiful Canning River and the Canning River Regional Park, which forms the green heart of the Canning community. The river is the focus of many recreational activities such as canoeing, swimming and fishing while the park provides facilities for cycling, bird-watching and walking.
Parks including the Kent Street Weir, Shelley Foreshore, historic Mason’s Landing and the Civic Gardens are beautiful, outdoor spaces to conduct special events such as a casual picnic or a formal wedding. For more information, contact Recreation Services via their webpage.
The City has a highly qualified environmental rehabilitation team who work closely with community-based environmental groups in conserving and enhancing the City’s valuable environmental character.
In recent years the City has also implemented a program of streetscape enhancement intended to create a more attractive urban environment for residents and visitors. Many thousands of trees have been planted along roadways and within parks.
