Starting from the carpark on Montreal Street, Fremantle, this walk takes you on a short circuit within Booyeembara Park. Booyeembara Park is a gorgeous park that blends landscaping with environmental restoration. 'Booyeembara' is a local Aboriginal word which means 'of the limestone hills.' Years of excavation has transformed the area into a very different landscape. The land, which was once a quarry and a tip, has been reborn as sixteen hectares of public open space. The park has plenty of open space, bushland, walking trails and a central man-made lake. Located within the park is a decent sized playground, a skate park and an installation of exercise equipment. There are also a couple of BBQs, but no picnic tables or shelters. Toilets are situated close to the playground up a steep embankment, next to the carpark. Entry is via one of several paths down to the paved circuit that forms the basis of the park. Just around the corner is a path leading to a jetty sitting on the upper lake. The trail loops around the upper lake and then makes its way back down to the lower lake. Booyeembara Park has plenty to offer, despite this loop being just over a kilometre. Any fitness fanatic would love the well-maintained paths and the exercise equipment on the western edge. For those that are after some peace, the idyllic setting of the lake is a very relaxing place to be. There are a few quiet spots around the lake to sit down and enjoy the scenery, or just relax in the shade reading a book. There is also the option of dirt paths that extend past the upper lake for those that want to add some extra length to their walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
