Two new publications capturing our love for Kings Park have just been released.
The latest annual visitor survey has been published, showing that a staggering 98 per cent of visitors were satisfied or very satisfied their time spent here. Continued demand has also led to a new edition of the popular Kings Park and Botanic Garden souvenir book hitting the shelves in Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop.
Now in its third edition, the souvenir book features fresh designs, plus updated stories and beautiful photographs.
Featuring stunning images, including detailed flora photographs, the book is a journey of discovery through Kings Park, delving into the land's indigenous significance, park history and key attractions and events.
Available from Aspects of Kings Park for $14.95, each book comes with a beautiful bookmark to celebrate the Western Australian Botanic Garden anniversary for a limited time only.
The release of the 2015 visitor survey results captures the responses of 516 visitors in key locations throughout the park.
Two thirds of respondents were local people visiting on a family outing.
The park's stunning views, appeal for kids, playground and beautiful environment were the most common highlights listed by visitors.
Ladies definitely love Kings Park with more than two thirds of the survey respondents being female. The median visitor is between 35 to 44 years of age, but Kings Park certainly appeals to people of all ages - the youngest respondent was under 15 years and the eldest was over 75.
Although just a small sample of the nearly six million visitors who are welcomed to Kings Park and Botanic Garden each year, it provides a valuable insight into our visitors which we can use to continually improve the park for local, interstate and overseas visitors alike.
