Russell Square

Russell Square

A beautiful green space offering the perfect balance of light and shade in the entertainment precinct of Northbridge.

Located between Aberdeen & James Street, Russell Square is one of the first areas in Perth to be set aside as a park. The large grassed areas, children's playground and abundance of Moreton Bay Fig trees, make it a perfect place for a picnic. During the summer months, Russell Square is transformed into the Fringe World - Pleasure Garden; a hub for one of the world’s largest art festivals, Perth’s Fringe World, offering local and international live performances, food outlets and free activities.The venue is diverse and available to host wide range of events.
