The Dorothy Scott Reserve is a bushland oasis in the heart of Bridgetown.
The Dorothy Scott Bushland is bordered by Blechynden and Barlee Streets in Bridgetown and is a small remnant of bushland just over 1.5 hectares in a residential area. The canopy of Jarrah and Marri includes some large and old trees and a healthy understory of shrubs and ground covers.
This reserve was named after Dorothy Scott (nee Champ 1891 – 1989), a pioneer, farmer, botanist, visionary environmentalist and first patron of the Bridgetown-Greenbushes friends of the forest.
Walk through the tranquil reserve and see marri, jarrah trees and numerous birds and other wildlife.
During spring there are many native wildflowers to be discovered.
