Kings Park celebrated in Vogue
Fashion and lifestyle publication, Vogue Australia has named Perth's Kings Park as one of the 'best parks in our favourite cities', placing the popular tourism attraction in the company of Central Park in New York City and the Summer Palace in Beijing.
The travel article, published this week, celebrates the correlation between green spaces and desirable cities, quoting a Parks Victoria and Deakin University report that found spending time in nature has physical, mental, social, and even spiritual benefits for people of all ages.
About 10 per cent of visitors to Kings Park are international and a further 10 per cent are from other parts of Australia. Evidence indicates Kings Park is hitting the spot with visitors from around the globe. Ninety nine per cent of Kings Park visitors have rated their experience of the park as satisfying or very satisfying for the past five years in a row, according to annual surveys. The park also continues to account for three of the top 10 visitor-rated Perth attractions on TripAdvisor.
