Located along the Swan River, McCallum Park is a go-to for the active people of Perth. The skate park has a strong local following thanks to its recently constructed concrete bowl. It varies in depth with six to nine foot drops and also hosts some of Western Australia’s biggest skate competitions.
The emphasis on exercising continues with three multi-purpose sports courts. They are mostly used for basketball, with lights recently being installed so you can shoot hoops after sunset. There are outdoor stations along the foreshore, each with different pieces of kinetic equipment, including four cardio machines and two weight machines.
A small jetty juts out into the river and there is also an alcove where you can launch canoes, stand-up paddleboards and sail boats. There’s plenty of large open spaces for sprinting and warming up too. Runners and cyclists make the most of the foreshore, with two separate walking and cycling paths running along the verge.
The views of the Swan River and Perth City, picnic tables, sunsets and shaded areas make this a great picnic spot as well. There are also plenty of barbecues and playgrounds.
