The strategic direction of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority is largely dictated by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998. Policy documents such as the Strategic Plan and Management Plans assist in the ongoing care and maintenance of the designated lands, Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park.

BGPA is part of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), an amalgamation that also includes Parks and Willidfe Services, Perth Zoo and Rottnest Island. Please visit the DBCA website to view BGPA plans and reports:
