Stewart Park is absolutely stunning and serene. It was donated to the town of Perth in 1947 by Mrs. Stewart, in memory of her husband.
The Tay River forks just above the park. One fork runs through the park, the other surrounds it at the far edge, with two beautiful walking bridges over the river. It has a great play structure area to keep kids amused and shallow access to dip your feet in the river.
It’s right in the heart of town, so access to restaurants and shopping at the beautiful, quaint stores is an easy walk.
The park also hosts an annual Stewart Park Festival with outstanding artists from around the world.
