Poetry Park – Como

Recently we have been spending some time in the Perth suburb of Como, and tucked away in a hidden corner of that suburb we came across the Poetry Park.

Actually called Neil McDougall Park after a dairy farmer who kept dairy cows on the site until the late 1940s, the park now has a picturesque lake inhabited by some interesting water birds. On the grassed area surrounding the lake, panels display the poems of 12 highly acclaimed Western Australian poets.
