BEST WEEKEND WALK: Sanctuary Waters Hidden Walk
Many locals who’ve stumbled upon this peaceful haven hidden amidst two busy roads in Sanctuary Waters didn’t even know it existed! The 1.7km dog-friendly easy walking path winds around a pristine lake through shady deciduous trees, pristine lawns and preserved bushland teeming with water birds, ducks and black swans. Mums with strollers, kids on bikes, urban athletes – the hidden walk is for all. It takes about 20 minutes to do the circuit (a little longer with kids in tow), with a handy central bridge that allows you to do a half circuit if you like. With covered pavilions, tables and seats, free barbeque and a shaded playground, this is a great way to spend a day.
BEST LAZY SUNDAY: Canning Vale Markets
The Canning Vale lifestyle is all about waking up early on a Sunday morning and making your way to the markets. Located on the corner of South Street and Bannister Road, the markets have evolved into a vibrant mecca of new and second hand selling stalls buzzing with families and bargain hunters. There’s something for everyone, from brand new shoes to antique furniture and pre-loved gems. And when all that walking has worked up your appetite just grab a bite to eat from the food and drink stands. Canning Vale Markets are open every Sunday from 7am-1pm, with over 1000 free parking bays. See you there!
BEST BIRTHDAY PARTIES: Triassic Fun Park
Hip hip hooray for the coolest birthday! Take a step back in time to a prehistoric playground at Triassic Fun Park on Ranford Road. Set in an ancient jungle setting with Pirate, Fairytale or Dinosaur themed party rooms, kids can walk, climb and crawl through the multi level play structure, ride the roaring robotic dinosaurs, challenge friends on the four-car racetrack or putt off at the state-of-the-art glow in the dark mini golf. For the really little ones there’s also a play area filled with soft play toys, climbing steps, tunnels and slides. And while the kids are busy playing, mum and dad can chill and chat in the coffee shop.
