Beautiful views
Canning River
Canning River Regional Park is a great place for all to visit.

Canning River Regional Park itself has trails leading to many different suburbs, so you can opt for a short or longer distance, depending on your preference.

The options for different routes also give you the option to vary your walking/running/biking adventures each time. I should also mention the river is also open to anyone with a kayak. It's a very popular pastime, especially at the weekend.

But if you are not into so much activity and would simply like a nice place to dine whilst enjoying a view, Canning River Cafe is ideally located and ready with a full breakfast and lunch menu offering up all the usual staples.

Remember the weekend does bring out the crowds, so it's ideal to either arrive earlier or book ahead.

The park also offers plenty of benches and BBQ areas for families wanting to enjoy a leisurely picnic. With plenty of open space, there's an abundance of room for children to run around.

A final note about the weekend crowds. Two recent additions have 'set up camp' on Saturdays; HBF run a training morning, where it puts its members through a morning fitness regime. Secondly there is Park Run, where a group of running enthusiasts meet at 8am each Saturday for a 5k run around the Canning River.

This is a favourite spot of mine, which I accidentally stumbled upon. Set away from the busy hustle and bustle of Albany Highway and Manning Road, it's almost a secret location.

Although once you visit, you wonder how you could ever of missed it.
