"Lovely street, with mostly lovely people, except for one."

It would be such a lovely street, if it were not for a particular resident. Her screaming, yelling & way of speech in general, using the most vulgar language I've heard (and I've lived next door to people that swore frequently), drunken partying outside after midnight on a weeknight (so my son has trouble sleeping, which in turn affects his schooling), making everyone else's business her business. My family's and my few years here have been, in part, quite tortuous!! It has got to the point where we sometimes can't even go to the toilet in peace!! At present though, we have nowhere else to go and it would be a real shame to have to move, when we get along with the other neighbours so well!!

Now, all these statements I've made, are in no way an insult, to that particular resident, nor to the street in general! I just want people that are looking at property on Donaldson Street, Queens Park, to know these things go on...not to deter them, just so they can be aware and prepared. My whole family try to be quiet, friendly, understanding people, that get along with everyone.

Apart from that though, it is a lovely, up and coming street and area as a whole, which has a real multicultural feel to it!
Pros
  • Multicultural feel
  • Family atmosphere, mostly
  • Near Transport, major shopping centre (Westfield Carousel)
Cons
  • That one particular resident, that makes people feel as if they are living under a dictatorship.
  • New homes built too close to existing homes, so a person loses their privacy.

"Donaldson Street"

We have lived here for just over a year and can't get over just how friendly it is, we know all our neighbours. There is good links to the city, with rail and roads. Quiet and peaceful street. Good schools are within easy reach and big family blocks at a reasonable price, perfect for a family one of the best kept secrets in perth
