  • Mardalup Playground is a popular location in East Perth for family picnics as it’s right on the banks of the Swan River, opposite the new Perth Stadium. Mardalup is a Nyungar term meaning ‘place of small marsupial’.

    There is a lot of open space in the park. The large grassy areas are perfect for ball games and the pretty, mature trees provide plenty of natural shade to throw down a picnic rug. There are sails directly shading the play equipment.
