The Town of Mosman Park is a local government area of Western Australia. It covers an area of approximately 4.3 km² in western metropolitan Perth, the capital of Western Australia and lies about 14 km southwest of the Perth CBD and 5 km from Fremantle.
The Buckland Hill Road District was created on 6 October 1899.
From July 1909 until October 1930, it was known as the Cottesloe Beach Road District.
It was renamed Mosman Park in 1937, and on 1 July 1961, became a shire following the enactment of the Local Government Act 1960. It became a town seven months later, and in 1997 the two wards were abolished.
The town has six councillors plus a mayor, and no wards.
Mosman Park is the only suburb within this municipality.
