Kings Park and Botanic Garden has been awarded the blue-ribbon Mayfair position on Perth's first-ever Monopoly board.

Kings Park tops Perth Monopoly boardTwenty-two Perth landmarks were selected to replace the famous London sites for the edition following public interest on social media forum Facebook. Other attractions include the Swan River, Fremantle Prison, Crown Perth and Cottesloe Beach.

The recognition affirms Kings Park and Botanic Garden's iconic status as one of the most visited destinations in Western Australia, welcoming over 5.8 million visitors in the last year alone. It is visited by 98% of Perth's interstate and overseas tourists and is much loved by the local community as the 'People's Park.'

Unlike many other great gardens of the world, Kings Park and Botanic Garden is open at all times and is free to visit. At 400.6 ha, it is of the biggest city parks in the world (larger than New York's Central Park at 315 ha and London's Hyde Park at 121 ha). The Western Australian Botanic Garden is a living collection of the state's unique native flora including rare and endangered species.

Much of Western Australia's history is recorded in the park's memorials and public artworks, with the State War Memorial attracting the largest ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Australia. Over 500 active volunteers work closely with staff to provide a positive visitor experience and range of free services including guided walks and gardening advice.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden is also a place of significant Nyoongar history, culture and connection, a leader in environmental education and a world-recognised research institution in conservation and ecological restoration. As the stage for many important events, and milestones, Kings Park has set the scene for countless family picnics, weddings, birthdays and school balls and become an integral part of the state's social history.

The Perth Monopoly board edition will be available from Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop in November 2013.
