Riverside Drive, East Perth, Perth
Langley Park was created by land reclamation between 1921 and 1935, in response to the need for public open space near the city. Major (later Sir) Norman Brearly used this park as an airstrip when he pioneered civil aviation in Western Australia in the 1920's, a time when aviation was routinely perilous.
The airstrip was re-named Langley Park after the Acting Lord Mayor, TW Langley, who on 3 August 1937, opened the first section of Riverside Drive.
