Friends of Bold Park Bushland Inc. logoThe Friends of Bold Park Bushland is a community group committed to protecting Bold Park. They played a key role in securing Bold Park as an A class reserve in the 1980's. Their current goal is to work with the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority to help create a world recognised urban wilderness.

The Friends take part in:

  • regeneration projects to maintain and improve the quality of the bushland
  • protecting the integrity of the park through lobbying and raising community awareness
  • open days that showcase how special Bold Park is
  • providing free guided walks through Bold Park bushland.
