Children's Forest is a 20 hectare public park located at 1399 Mandurah Road, Baldivis.

The park was a community development with the aim of "Conservation through Education".

The park encourages the promotion of biodiversity, conservation, sustainability, and Aboriginal cultural values. Primary focus in on encouraging children to become involved in the park and for them to appreciate the natural environment.

Initial work on the project started in 1999 and with the support of local government and businesses, has continued to develop and add resources.

The are several walk trails in the forest and facilities include toilets, an outdoor classroom, amphitheatre and BBQ.

Schools are invited to participate in various programs that are held each year and more information on this can be found at the official website.

Community workshops and events are held each week and everyone is welcome to become involved and volunteer their time to help maintain and improve the park.

The park has received a number of rewards over the years including the United Nations Environmental Education Award, Westpac Education Awards, Landcare Australia Ltd WA People's Choice Award, NAB Schools First Award, Environmental Sustainability, W.A. State Sustainable Cities Award, Biodiversity Management and Heritage and Culture, National and State Junior Landcare Awards and PALS Indigenous Education Awards.

The parking area at the entrance can become crowded, especially on weekends. It would be great if this area could be expanded a bit to cater for the number of people who visit.

The park is an excellent place to view the local bird life but you can also find other wildlife including reptiles, marsupials and you will find wildflowers near the end of winter and into spring (August-October).
