The Canning River Regional Park offers a variety of bushwalking, cycling, kayak and canoe trails following along the beautiful Canning River (Djarlgarro Beeliar).
The Weir at Kent Street Weir is a partition in the Djarlgarro Beeliar which keeps salty water to one side and fresh water on the other. This allows for two different ecosystems to exist side-by-side, making this Regional Park an important refuge for a variety of bird and other wildlife.
Kent Street Weir is a popular spot for families with access for people with disabilities with ACROD parking, wide open paths, public and unisex accessible toilets, dual height barbecues and sheltered picnic tables.
The open expanses of grassed areas make it a great spot to play and explore with friends and family. Along the banks of the river, there is also a canoe/kayak launch where you can experience sand and water play as well as canoeing and kayaking.
Use this app to explore Kent Street Weir before, during or after your visit.
Please beware of snakes during warmer summer months and ensure children are supervised around the Weir and other bodies of water.
Nature Play WA would like to thank the City of Canning, the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and Sister Kate’s Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation for providing valuable information about Kent Street Weir and the importance of the Canning River, Djarlgarro Beeliar.
