Just 5 minutes from the Perth City centre you will find this nice Lake to walk around. Dogs are ok to take. Has some playground equipment for children also.

It's close to the Freeway, but extensive planting of native species over the past two decades has muted the noise of traffic on the eastern side, and greatly improved the appeal of the place. The historic southern section with its Norfolk Pines and Weeping Willows...More

Great gardens and scenery. Ducks and Swans very playful. Yes snakes around (Tiger), but stick to the trails and path. Great for families and picnics.

A decent long walk with plenty of wildlife and some great views of the city skyline. Watch out for snakes though, saw a couple last time.

The reserve's proximity to Leederville makes it perfect for a pre-brunch power walk or sunset stroll. There are also restrooms, a playground, at least three water fountains and a few parking areas. Most of the paths seem accessible too, so there's no excuse not to...More

This is a must see for tourists. Walk around the lake and take photos of the swans and ducks. See if you can spot a stray tortoise. A couple of good lookouts around the lake. Lots of trees and a couple of play equipment areas...More

Catch the Joondalup line train from Perth and alight at Leederville station. Walk about ten minutes east along Grantham Street and you will be there. Enjoy and take a drink with you.

I suspect re-creating a natural habitat would attract Swans. Other than that check out the WA government Parks and Wildlife website which may provide your answer.
