The city has lots of parks and reserves, many of which have playgrounds located in those areas. Most of these parks and reserves are designed for passive recreational and leisure activities such as picnics and walks, and areas to relax outdoors with the family.
Nicholson Road Reserve provides facilities for more casual forms of recreation including petanque courts, two hard surface tennis courts and a skate park facility. Nicholson Road Reserve is also home to the local Police and Citizens Youth Centre.
In August 2013 the City of Subiaco received funding from the Department of Sport and Recreation to extend and upgrade the Nicholson Road Skate park which included a linkage between the two skating bowls, extension of the street run and the addition of a new china bank and refuge area.
The improved facility has provided new opportunities for active and passive recreation for both existing and new users. The skate park has an increase of appeal to a greater range of ability levels and skaters are now able to make a smoother transition to the next level of competency.
As the key facility for organised team sports in the Subiaco area, Rosalie Park is located adjacent to Kings Park, and is the city’s primary team sporting facility. It houses the largest combination of sporting fields in the western suburbs, catering for most of the city's active sporting activities. The park attracts a significant level of use throughout the year with organised sporting activities, such as Australian rules football, lacrosse, soccer, touch rugby and cricket.
The facility has a clay wicket block, cricket practice wickets/nets, and lighting on the sports fields for night training.
In the first half of 2014, Rosalie Park's facilities were refurbished to improve functionality for park users and sporting clubs. The upgrades included the addition of new storage facilities for the sporting clubs, new kitchen amenities, upgrades to toilet, change room and meeting facilities and renovations of the two pavilions, including a new roof for the west pavilion.
The city has developed a comprehensive parking map for Rosalie Park. Please note that parking restrictions displayed on the map are subject to change and drivers should always check the signage when parking.
