Saw Avenue Lawn East, Kings Park. Photo: D. BlumerView venue slideshow

The shady, open lawn on the eastern side of Saw Avenue is ideal for most activities and easy to access. Planted in 1920, the avenue of palms creates a formal streetscape leading into Kings Park from Subiaco.

Species featured on the avenue include Canary Island palm (Phoenix canariensis), Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera); Senegal Date palm (Phoenix reclinata) and Cotton Palm (Washingtonia filifera).

Nature-based play facilities are available across the road at Variety Place. At the northern end of this venue near Thomas Road is the Subiaco Lodge, built in 1903 as a caretaker's cottage. At the southern end across May Drive is the Tobruk Memorial which honours the 'Rats of Tobruk' who defended Tobruk during the siege by German and Italian armies in 1941.
