The Canning River Regional Park is one of those magic places that gives you a sense of being deep in nature even when you are in the middle of a City.
Extending for six kilometres along both sides of the Canning River it includes large areas of parkland, extensive wetlands and a river teeming with birdlife, fish, turtles and marron.
The best ways to see it are by bike or kayak with good access from Shelley Bridge or the Kent St Weir, other launching points include Mason’s Landing , Kent St Weir, Riverton Jetty Park and Woodloes Park.
The Canning Canoe Trail Project runs the length of the river but you should set aside two to three hours to do the component that runs through the Park, or a whole day if you are keen to paddle there and back with a lunch stop half way.
There are four interpretive dual use trails that run through the park so pack the bikes or the backpacks and get out and about in one of the prettiest parks around.
