Set against the expansive blue canvas of the Indian Ocean, Alkimos Beach stretches out like a dream, offering more than just sun, sand, and surf. It’s a place where the rich tapestry of history now meets modern sustainable living and community.
As the WA sun casts golden hues across the shoreline, one can’t help but reminisce about the legends surrounding this pristine coastline. Tales abound of the shipwrecked Greek freighter, SS Alkimos, which met its tragic fate near these shores in the 1960s.
But Alkimos Beach is not just about history; it’s about the promise of tomorrow. Today, it stands as one of Perth’s most sought-after coastal communities that shines with a rare 6-Star Green-Star certification. A development where beach life and community have been reimagined and purposefully designed. Every home is located within 400m of a park, meaning you can get active, play with the kids and meet neighbours all within a leisurely walk from home.
The headline feature of the Alkimos Beach development is Bathers Park. Sprawling across 2.5 hectares, Bathers Park, adjacent to the Alkimos Beach foreshore, is the latest jewel in this beach-side crown and it’s no wonder it has quickly become a favourite among the locals and beach-goers.
Bathers Park playground is certainly one of a kind and takes inspiration from its coastal location. The main playground features a bespoke seven-metre high surf rescue-themed play tower that will test even the bravest of kids. The playground isn’t just for the big kids, though, with the park also featuring an all-ages section including a mix of climbing, rope, nature, and water play to offer families a complete playground solution.
Amphitheatre, Open Spaces, and Plaza
A park is only as good as the space available, and Bathers Park has space for days. While many communities haven’t thought past adding a playground and a few tables, Bathers Park has been planned to ensure it becomes a community hub for locals to enjoy the wide open spaces and to also host regular community-led events.
The grass amphitheatre provides a truly unique addition to the park allowing for the perfect space to hold local events.
Then as soon as the sun is shining you will want to pack the picnic basket, grab some sausages and buns from the supermarket, and make your way down to Bathers Park with a number of picnic shelters and BBQ areas.
That’s not all though, the Plaza within Bathers Park has been designed to allow for the hosting of local community events featuring everyone’s favourites — food trucks and coffee vans.
For those wanting to have a social game of beach volleyball, Bathers Park has two sand beach volleyball courts — these aren’t your standard courts though with the courts having tiered seating for those who want to simply sit back, enjoy the sunshine, and watch the action.
It’s not just all about the attractions, Bathers Park’s design has been considered to harmonise with its natural surroundings. The park connects to the community’s existing Conservation Reserve and coastal dune system, helping to retain the foreshore’s natural landform and protecting the area from wind. Plus Bathers Park has over 80% native species planted to ensure local wildlife aren’t hindered but instead flourish.
You will find Bathers Park in Alkimos Beach located 35 to 40 minutes north of Perth.
