Lloyd Hughes park is a 17.7 hectare A class reserve in the foothills of the Darling Scarp at Kelmscott and managed by the City of Armadale.

The main vegetation types within the Park comprise Marri and Jarrah woodland, and Flooded Gum woodland along the creek-line.
In earlier times, areas within the Park were mined for gold and slate.

The entire Park was burnt in the 2011 Roleystone-Kelmscott Bushfire.
