Shenton Park is located alongside the western edge of Kings Park, about 5km west of the Perth CBD. The suburb is characterised by its wide, leafy avenues and traditional tin-roofed 3-bedroom cottages. Many of these have been renovated in the original style, while others have been redeveloped as modern townhouses.
The centrepiece of the suburb is Lake Jualbup, a tranquil reserve on the northern side of the suburb. Shenton Village is a thriving local shopping and restaurant area.
