Adenia Park sits within the Canning River Regional Park and contains some of the best estuarine vegetation in the Swan Canning Riverpark. The park has a wide diversity of habitats including the salt water estuary and islands, and has over 100 species of birds.
This area is popular for bush walks, dog exercising, cycling, and picnicking. Informal tracks that lead through the swamp to areas alongside the river are well used, particularly for fishing. The Australian Sikh Heritage Trail is a new interpretive trail in the park.
Adenia Park is very significant to the Australian Sikh community as this site has long been associated with religious ceremonies. In 1929 it was the location of the first legal cremations in WA after the Sikh community campaigned for cremation to be legalised.
The site is now on the State Heritage List and to reflect on and celebrate this history, the Australian Sikh Heritage Trail provides visitors with a unique opportunity to learn about this important heritage, the Whadjuk Noongar people and the natural landscape of the area.
