“Black swans galore”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

If you want to see black swans, have a nice walk around a lake and a park with shady spots then you can do worse than come here.

The freeway goes down one side of it though, which is a shame.

“Its a lovely walk close to the City for Visitors.”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

The Lake has BBQ facilities a playground (several) and a fitness track. Come for an hour or walk or cycle around the lake Lots of wild life stacks of black swans and ducks wonder to their hearts content. Please don't feed them its not good for them. Don't leave valuables in your car the area does have a bit of a reputation but if you are considered you will really enjoy your time there.

“a pleasant track for the leisurely runner”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Lake Monger provides a nice running track with a view of the lake, spots of shade, a couple water fountains, a handful of mediocre fitness stations, bathroom facilities, and heaps of different birds and ducks. At a distance of 3.3km it is perfect for the novice runner, but a bit lacking in varied terrain for someone looking for more of a challenge.

“Take your camera”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

I had never seen a black swan before and here there were hundreds. A large group came over as soon as we arrived obviously hoping to be fed. the notices said not to so we didn't.
This tranquil lake is home to many ducks, geese, and what appeared to be gulls. Well worth a visit but we were warned to keep an eye out for the snakes!!!!!!

“A place to see swans and all”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This is the place that you should go if you want to see the black swans in Perth. A spot for stroll and jog. Note that during summer, all the flies will be out - swatting is common sight. The birds are well fed by the lake (fishes), so only if you want to feed them, you can bring some bread crumbs. Very easy to locate the park if you have a GPS.
