Congratulations to the Friends of Kings Park who are celebrating 25 fantastic years of supporting 'the peoples’ park' in May 2018.

Friend of Kings Park, Gillian, at native plant saleEstablished to promote Western Australia’s unique flora and encourage community involvement in Kings Park and Botanic Garden, the Friends now have a strong membership, a variety of active volunteer groups and an impressive track record in fund raising and successful grants which has contributed $15 million to Kings Park projects to benefit the Western Australian community and research programs.

The Friends enjoy successful relationships with many community groups, volunteer associations and funding partners. One such relationship has been with Lotterywest, the Friends’ largest funding partner, who have provided nearly $13 million in grants to support a wide range of projects in Kings Park such as the Place of Reflection, the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park and several Kings Park Festivals. Construction of a new volunteer hub in Kings Park will commence in 2018, thanks to a $2.4 million grant from Lotterywest to the Friends – a fitting project in this anniversary year.

You can celebrate the Friends’ 25th anniversary by becoming a member in 2018. Enjoy great membership benefits and the satisfaction of supporting one of the world’s greatest parks and the ‘green heart’ of our local community.

You can also support the Friends (and your own garden!) by coming along to the Native Plant Sale on Sunday 20 May. Not only can you pick up a great selection of native plants lovingly grown by the Friends of Kings Park, but you’ll be directly supporting the Friends and Kings Park and Botanic Garden with your purchase.

We send a warm congratulations to the Friends of Kings Park and thank them for a wonderful 25 year friendship.
