  • About

    On a recent road trip, we took a detour through Northam, the detour was originally to check out the Northam Suspension Bridge, which is one of the longest pedestrian bridges in Australia. After crossing the bridge, which was well worth the visit (until the kids thought it was fun to make it sway), we discovered Bernard Park which features two fully fenced play areas, a water playground, sculptures, amphitheatre, picnic and BBQ facilities and public toilets.

    The water playground was by far the highlight for the kids, even though we were completely unprepared for water play! The playground is activated with the press of a button and runs on 15 minute cycles between 9am – 6pm. My kids had an absolute ball running around in their clothes, it was a great way to cool off and burn off some excess energy.

    The first fully fenced playground is a little dated but perfect for toddlers with a train, slide and toddler swings.

    The second playground is much bigger in size and perfect for older children with swings, lots of slides, imagination and climbing areas.

    The play areas are surrounded by lots of green grass, there is a large powered amphitheatre, picnic tables, gazebos and BBQs.

    It was really of much interest to the kids, but I enjoyed checking out the public art, which included metal sculptures and an original section of locking bar pipe from 1903.

    If you are feeling like a walk, there is a lovely walk trail and lookout. Along the way, you might spot the famous white swans and other wildlife.

    Bernard Park not only ticks all the boxes, in a gorgeous location along banks of the Avon River, it is also close by to shops and next to the Riversedge Cafe. The Visitor Centre is also next to the playground if you are looking for places to visit.
