Queens Gardens, Perth, is a 3.3-hectare (8.2-acre) park on a former brickworks and clay pit site in the eastern end of the Perth central business district. The park is bounded by Hay Street to the south, Plain Street to the west, Nelson Crescent to the north, and Hale Street to the east, which separates it from the WACA Ground.
The site of Queen's Gardens was initially part of the commonage that was used for recreation purposes including horse racing and later as a clay pit and brickworks. Bricks were produced from the site between 1860 and 1890 and featured in many of Perth's prominent buildings constructed at that time, including the Town Hall, The Cloisters and The Barracks. At this time the place was known as the East Perth Clayfields Reserve. Between 1880 and 1890 there were a number of public protests against the use of the site for clay pits, which resulted in the City of Perth partially filling the clay pits to form ponds and the site being transferred to the city for the purpose of establishing a botanic garden.

Beautiful park, perfect to relax, lots of grass to sit down an have a quiet moment, picnic or read a book. You can also find the original chair used in Notting Hill and replica of a Peter pan statue.

My fav place in Perth. I'd like to get married in this stunning slice of heaven. Whether you're coming for a quiet place to read your Agatha Christie novel and enjoy a local cup of Joe, or you're on an adventurous picnic with 10 of your closest friends, this is the location for you. The weather ways seems to be fair as soon as you step through her gates. With seams on the pond and flowers everywhere it truly does transport you to a place Allen Wonderland, and you wonder will a white rabbit be seen with his pocket watch in his paw grumbling aloud about being late.

Lovely park for a break and birds watching (black cygnet). A bit of fresh air on hot burning days.

A beautiful park that nevertheless allows those from the smelly class to supply it's manicured lawns. One star off cos I couldn't find any Queens. Some fairies, a couple of metrosexuals but no Queens. Dancing or otherwise Unless they meant residents of Queens borough, NYC None of those either, so I couldn't ask

An oasis nestled in amongst the city streets. A very good place to go for a walk or just sit, relax and watch the wildlife.
