Bold Park 22
About Us 2
The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA or Authority) manages Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park in Perth, Western Australia. These are two of Perth's largest parks, incorporating the State's Botanic Garden and important urban bushland areas.
The Authority sits within the Western Australian State Government portfolio of the Minister for the Environment, who is responsible for the appointment of the BGPA Board of Management. The strategic direction of the Authority is largely dictated by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998 and Regulations 1999.
The Authority's vision is to create and provide world-recognised botanic gardens and parks and to inspire the conservation of biological diversity. Many staff and volunteers work enthusiastically to make both parks the inspiring places they are today.
