  • Situated on the Swan River foreshore alongside Optus Stadium, the Chevron Parkland includes 2.6 hectares of rehabilitated parklands and nature-based playgrounds. Chevron Parkland was officially opened as part of the Optus Stadium Open Day in January 2018.

    As the name suggests, Yaargan Dry Creek is just like a dried up creek with river stones, small plants, rocks, logs and wooden bridges.

    The Whadjuk name for a long-necked turtle is a Yaargan, there are 8 bronze discovery turtles and 4 carved turtles located throughout the Chevron Parkland – can you find them all?

    Qwandong Towers – Kambarang Season

    A big hit with the older kids! They’ll love scaling the huge climbing structure than sliding down the long tunnel slide.

    Bullung Hangout – Bunuru Season

    Chevron Plarkland, Optus Stadium

    You’ll need to watch young children around this play space as it is right on the edge of the water. The Whadjuk name for pelican is Bullung and for a white crane it is Bulland, birds that are regularly found in the Bily Lake. Children can climb the ropes and try to spot some birds.

    All play areas have very limited shade, bring a hat, suncream and a bottle of water!

    There are a number of BBQ areas, shelters, picnic facilities and drink fountains in and around the play areas. In addition to the play spaces, there are 4 lawn areas big enough to kick a ball on.

    The Chevron Parkland is free for everyone to enjoy and open all year round, there is lots of free parking available at Optus Stadium on non-event days.

    Bring your bike or scooter, there are plenty of pathways and bike racks.

    There are public unisex toilets located outside the stadium, while the toilets aren’t overly far away it may be difficult for little ones who are ‘busting’, so try to have a toilet break before heading into the parkland.
