Langley Park

Langley Park was created by land reclamation between 1921 and 1935, in response to the need for public open space near the city.

Details

  • Natural Attractions:Local Parks & Gardens

Description

Langley Park is an open space in the central business district of Perth, Western Australia. Running alongside Riverside Drive, it is grassed, rectangular in shape and has dimensions 900 x 100 m (3000 x 300 ft). It was created by reclaiming land from the adjacent Swan River between 1921 and 1935, to provide open space near the city.

As a pioneer of civil aviation in Western Australia, Major Norman Brearley used the park as an airstrip in the 1920s. That tradition continues with "fly-ins", where small aircraft land in the park. In 2003, to celebrate 100 years of powered flight, 10 aircraft representing each decade of the 20th century landed.

Aircraft have also used the park to perform emergency landings. In 1997 a Tiger Moth TMK had an engine failure and put down in the park. While not an official airfield, Langley Park makes Perth a place where fixed-wing aircraft can land in proximity to the central business district.

Langley Park's location makes it a popular place to view the annual Lotterywest Skyworks, which are held over the river. The Telstra Rally Australia World Rally Championship held events at the park for 11 years from 1992 to 2002, and once more in 2005.

During 17-19 November 2006, 2-4 November 2007 and 1-2 November 2008, the final stage of the Red Bull Air Race World Series was held over the Swan River and Perth Water, using Langley Park as the airfield.

Cirque Du Soleil has used the park many times to set up its big top for its shows whenever a big top touring production visits Australia. Shows performed at Langley park: Saltimbanco, Alegria, Quidam, Dralion, Varekai.
