1) Adventure to the Heron Park Youth Park

After consulting Heron Park residents, including a cohort of local school students, The Heron Park Youth Park opens in March 2020. The Youth Park completes the extensive network of outdoor spaces in Heron Park and was built specifically for the growing number of tweens and teenagers in the Harrisdale area. Alongside a dedicated skate zone, the Youth Park features a half-court basketball/netball surface, kick about space, pump track and an 'eagles nest' climbing look-out as well as shaded picnic shelters and barbeques.

2) Outdoor cinema spectacular

Who doesn’t love an evening under the stars with your favourite snacks and great company? We certainly do. Heron Park is located close to a range of outdoor movie spots the whole family can enjoy. 

Some of our favourite cinema destinations include Kings Park Moonlight Cinemas, Rooftop Movies in Northbridge, Telethon Community Cinemas in Burswood and Perth Openair Cinema in East Perth.

3) Explore Fremantle Youth Plaza

Located at Fremantle’s Esplanade Reserve is the Fremantle Youth Plaza, designed to be an inner-city hub for families and young people to spend their free time.

Skateboarders, BMX and scooter riders are often spotted here along with those who enjoy parkour! The Fremantle Esplanade is WA’s first outdoor parkour park, so if you or your tweens are adrenaline junkies - head here!

Adjacent to the park is a range of cafes, restaurants and a coastal walk to enjoy including Bathers Beach House, Little Creatures and more WA favourites.

4) Join the Police

Join the Police… Rangers Program, that is. The Cecil Andrews Police Rangers program is open to all youth 12-17 years old in the Harrisdale and wider Armadale area, meeting every Wednesday from 6 till 9 pm at Cecil Andrews Senior High School. The program teaches a variety of fun and practical for teens and tweens including; knots and navigation, bush survival, road awareness, basic bike repairs, cultural activities, developing leadership skills and more.
