Saw Avenue was opened in 1902. The road alignment formed part of original 1870s bridle trail leading from Subiaco to Crawley baths, where generations of Western Australians learnt to swim.

The area is named after Mr William Allnutt Saw. Mr Saw was a member of the Board from 1927-1949 and President from 1936-1945.

In 1938, the Subiaco Playground, now known as Saw Avenue Picnic Area, was grassed. Thanks to the generous support of Variety the Children's Charity of WA, the precinct was refurbished in 2009 with modern community facilities and an innovative nature based play area named Variety Place.

WA has its say about Kings Park

Western Australia has returned a glowing report card to Kings Park via a community survey conducted early in 2020, with clear expectations for the park’s role in conserving the State’s flora and supporting the health of the community in its future management.

Invitation to comment

The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority is seeking community feedback on the Draft Kings Park and Botanic Garden Management Plan 2021-2025 that will guide park management over the next five years.
