The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority welcomes visitors from all walks of life to enjoy the delights of Bold Park and seeks cooperation from visitors to ensure both the environment and other visitors are respected, particularly in relation to restraining dogs on leads.

BGPA Director of Horticulture and Conservation Lesley Hammersley says Bold Park is one of just a few conservation reserves where dogs are permitted.

'We know how much canine companions mean to many of our visitors, but all dogs must be restrained on a lead of less than two metres at all times while in Bold Park. Visitors are welcome to enjoy this beautiful place with dogs on leads, ensuring they also collect waste and dispose of it in the bins provided.'

Bold Park is a valuable sanctuary for a vast array of native wildlife and plants in the western suburbs of Perth, as well as a tranquil escape for visitors.

'Responsible dog ownership makes a really big difference to the conservation of the natural environment in Bold Park, as well as the safety and enjoyment of all visitors. Our goal is to provide protection for the native flora and fauna and an environment in which all visitors can continue to enjoy their experience in Bold Park.'

Bold Park staff will be reinforcing this message with visitors bringing dogs to the park, with an on the spot fine of $100 applying to those found not complying with the requirements.

If you would like more information about visiting Bold Park, please refer to the Visitor Checklist or contact us for assistance.
