There are several recreation areas in this 3,000 Ha park including Fred Jacoby Park, South Ledge, North Ledge, Farrell Grove, The Dell, Gungin Gully, Pimelia Mycumbene and Grevillea Mycumbene. Most sites have shaded picnic areas, lookouts, wood barbecues and toilets. Some walk and cycle trails lead off from several recreation sites.

The Dell provides access to mountain bike and walking trails. Fred Jacoby Park is famous for the largest living English oak tree in W.A. At South Ledge the Golden View Lookout gives sweeping views of Lake CY O'Connor, Mundaring Weir and Helena River Valley.

The 27 kilometre Kalamunda Heritage Trail walk stretches between Fred Jacoby Park and Bickley Brook Reservoir. The first 3 kilometre section to Number 1 Pump Station is one of the most popular walks in the area.

There are two campsites located at the Perth Hills National Parks Centre. Both the Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail pass through this area as well.

Patens Brook Campsite is closed from December to March. It is a walk in site suitable only for tents. The second campsite has more facilities and a higher fee is charged. It is also only suitable for tent based camping.

Animals that live in the park include the western quoll, southern brown bandicoot, common brushtail possum, short-beaked echidna, western grey Kangaroo and the western brush wallaby.

There is a dog exercise area at Fred Jacoby Park but elsewhere in the park, pets are prohibited.

The park (then known as Mundaring National Park) was established in 1995. It was renamed Beelu in 2008.
