Rules and Regulations
The Botanic Gardens and Park Authority (BGPA) and its Board of Management manage Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park under the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998 and associated Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Regulations 1999.
The proclamation of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998 in 1999 dissolved the Kings Park Board and established the Botanic Gardens and Park Authority (BGPA) and its Board of Management to control and manage Kings Park and other land (currently Bold Park).
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (the PID Act) came into effect on 1 July 2003. The PID Act facilitates the disclosure of public interest information by providing protection for those who make disclosures and those who are the subject of disclosures.
The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (the Authority) is committed to the aims and objectives of the PID Act. It recognises the value and importance of contributions of staff to enhance administrative and management practices and strongly supports disclosures being made by staff or the community regarding corrupt and improper conduct.
The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority manages Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park. The Authority’s Regulations cover a wide range of issues to ensure visitor safety and to protect the managed lands and assets.
The Authority is required to issue infringements for breaches to the Regulations and penalties may apply. Actions that may attract infringements include illegal parking; speeding; littering; damage to plants or wildlife; or, dogs off leads.
