Congratulations to Lotterywest, long-standing supporter of the Friends of Kings Park, who recently celebrated 80 years of community service to Western Australia.

Boy with Indigenous paintingThe partnership began in 1995 with a grant application to refurbish what is now known as the Lotterywest Family Area. The popular play area is greatly loved by families with young children.

The Water Garden redevelopment followed in 2000, with beautiful outdoor art installations and a new pavilion to celebrate the Centenary of Women's Suffrage. In 2003, one of Lotterywest's most spectacular community projects opened - the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, providing a treetop panorama of the Swan River and Perth city and Kings Park's first major capital works collaboration with the Nyoongar community.

Over the last decade, Lotterywest has supported many Kings Park Festival events, the Place of Reflection development and the unique Lotterywest Bushbase in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

Since 1993, the Friends of Kings Park has received 20 Lotterywest grants totaling more than $9 million. The Friends of Kings Park and Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority extend a sincere thank you to Lotterywest for their continued commitment to delivering world class assets and conserving biodiversity. We are honoured to be part of their 80 years of service.
