John Oldham Park

John Oldham Park features a lake and waterfall set in lush surrounds, with stunning city views.

John Oldham Park

John Oldham park is located within the Narrows Interchange Parklands which were developed in 1959 with the reclamation of 24 hectares of land from Mounts Bay for the construction of the Narrows Bridge approach and interchange.

This land reclamation, which started in October 1954, saw the addition of 3,400,000 m3 of sand.

The parklands are divided into two regions:

John Oldham Park – named after John Oldham, a respected Western Australian Landscape architect. Walk and cycle paths make the area easily accessible.
David Carr Memorial Park - Named to honour the late Mr David Carr, a former Commissioner of Town Planning.

This area features lakes, walk and cycle paths and underpasses to provide safe access through the area and linking John Oldham Park to the Swan River foreshore.
