MetrO 4 - North Perth (Laneway Labyrinth)

Saturday, 26 November 2022

Kyilla Park, Union St, North Perth

The North Perth map comprises an older, inner-city urban area bounded by Walcott St to the north, Charles St to the west, Vincent St in the south and Fitzgerald St on the east. There are several small parks, two primary schools, shops, restaurants and small industrial premises.

A major feature of the area is the large number of rear laneways, over 70 of them, providing some route choice puzzles. Kyilla Park, the assembly area, includes playgrounds, space for casual ball sports, and gardens. Kyilla Primary School is immediately north of the Park: some gates into the school will be open, but parts of the school will be marked as Out of Bounds due to construction work.
