Perth is setting the benchmark with innovative, custom scooter and bike tracks for kids. The below are just a few options for kids of all ages in Perth to get a great scooter or balance bike experience without being overrun by big crowds and older riders. Better yet, there is playground equipment, shelters and nice spots to enjoy the views for Mum and Dad.

Kids of all ages love Wembley Park with a built in scooter track surrounding a playground equipped with heaps of climbing features, trampolines and a flying fox. It is adjacent to large sports fields to then expel dome more energy with a game of soccer or just running around!
Amberton Pirate Ship and Scooter Park
The park and scooter track at Amberton Estate in Eglinton is another favourite amongst Perth locals. With a scooter rack made just for scooters with lots of gentle slopes and mounds ideal for scooters.

Rendell Park, Koondoola
Rendell Park in Koondoola is another great park with a custom scooter and balance bike pathway complete with road traffic signs. It sits amongst the Koondoola Regional Bushland so a nature walk after the park is another must-do.
