A botanic 'staircase' highlighting Western Australia's impressive history of botanical discoveries will be built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the WA Botanic Garden in Kings Park in 2015.

Botanic Garden entry wildflower displaysThe Hon Albert Jacob, Minister for Environment; Heritage made the announcement at the launch of the 2014 Kings Park Festival on Sunday 7 September. Minister Jacob said the 'staircase', or tiered walkway, has been made possible thanks to a $1.8 million Lotterywest grant to the Friends of Kings Park.

'The 'staircase' will be a large-scale tiered walk with interpretive artworks that feature the history of botanical discoveries in Western Australia, from plants used by the first Aboriginal inhabitants of our State, to the colonial period and today', Minister Jacob said.

The staircase will begin at the entrance to the Western Australian Botanic Garden and sweep down the sloping lawns and gardens, delivering visitors to a new community pavilion perched on the escarpment and overlooking the Swan and Canning Rivers. The new pavilion is expected to be a popular venue for community gatherings, weddings and other celebrations.

The Friends of Kings Park will work with the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority on the design and planning of the project.

The launch of the Kings Park Festival featured live music from Christine Anu in the first of a series of Santos Live Sundays concerts this month.
