Unveiling Eyre Park BBQ: A Green Gem in Albany

Imagine a place where stunning views and lush greenery serve as the backdrop for a delightful public barbecue. Welcome to Eyre Park in Albany, Western Australia. Designed masterfully by Henry Baxter in 1946, the park's layout is a testament to a perfect blend of nature and leisure, winning the competition organized by the Alberta Council.

A Park for All

Eyre Park is an open invitation to everyone. With an abundance of benches scattered throughout the park, restful moments soaking in the view or post-meal lounging are a given. Arriving by car or bike? Rest assured, there's ample parking and plenty of spots to secure bicycles.

It's not just a barbecue enthusiast's paradise; it's a playground for kids, too. A variety of playground activities and even a basketball court ensures the little ones have plenty to keep them occupied.

Outdoor Delights

Nestled within the park are shaded seating areas, perfect for family picnics or a peaceful moment under the sprawling trees. The grass? It's lush, making it ideal for a family game of footy. And don't forget about the furry family members! Dogs are welcome, albeit on a leash.

Essential Amenities

Eyre Park has convenience in mind. Restrooms are strategically located near the barbecue area, with water fountains on hand for that post-BBQ thirst.
