Description

Located off Mundaring Road Fred Jacoby Park is surrounded by state forest and consists of landscaped gardens and many trees planted from around the world. It also contains one of the largest living English oak trees in Western Australia. A boardwalk enables visitors to get in under the canopy of this 140-year-old heritage-listed tree, whilst protecting the tree roots from compaction.

Universal Access
Fred Jacoby is well equipped for people in wheelchairs. There are accessible parking bays as well as toilets and picnic areas.

History
Fred Jacoby developed the gardens in the early 1900s. He was a tireless worker and organised the building of the Goldfields Weir Hotel (now the Mundaring Hotel). Mr Jacoby died in 1954 and his daughter Mrs Elfreda Devenish, donated the land around Jacoby Park to the people of Western Australia and it is now managed by DPaW.
