Travel author Bill Bryson has found himself in many breathtaking parts of the world but says Kings Park is the best park he has ever seen.

Two River's Lookout'Kings Park is the most beautiful, interesting, surprise-around-every-corner park I have ever seen. I would live there if they let me,' said Bryson.

Bryson has been in Perth this week on a live show tour around Australia and spoke about Kings Park during an interview on 6PR radio, Thursday, 13 March 2014.

He has spoken about his love for Kings Park over many years, including a detailed description in his astute and laugh-out-loud book about Australia,'Down Under'.

We are currently seeking quotes, photos and memories from people from all walks of life for the 'Kings Park at Heart' project. If you have a story to tell, please read more about the social history project and contact us.
