The Poolgarla Family Area is accessible via Kings Park Road on the Park's northern boundary and is most suited as a family and recreation space. The Ivey Watson Playground provides an ideal play area for children under six years. Biara (formerly Stickybeaks) Cafe and Hale Oval provide ideal facilities for families, with older children enjoying ball sports, the popular space net and the 'learn-to-ride' bicycle path.

Hale Oval has been continuously used as a playground and sporting ground since 1897 and the nearby historic Royal Kings Park Tennis Club is one of the oldest tennis clubs in the southern hemisphere. In 2007, the tennis club and heritage stands underwent restoration during the development of the Next Generation Kings Park fitness facility.

A number of hire venues are available for group bookings.
