This is the first time in a decade that functioning coloured lights will be able to illuminate the iconic Fraser Avenue trees. This project was possible through the COVID-19 recovery stimulus package given to the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA).

Executive Director Alan Barrett says that ‘one of the BGPA strategic priorities is to create "Truly local experiences" and this new lighting system will deliver a fantastic experience along beautiful Kings Park Fraser Avenue trees that will be seen at night from across Perth and delight visitors and residents alike’. He added ‘the system has a multi colour and display pattern function that will add a new element to the very texture of Perth City’.

‘Kings Park belongs to the people of Western Australia and it is important that we build facilities and experiences that appeal to the broader general public.

‘Imagine how this will help celebrate or commemorate any important occasions by colour coordinating Kings Park.’

The system is flexible in how it operates with virtually unlimited colours and combinations matched with a multitude of display patterns. It uses the latest lighting technology that has a 50% reduced energy consumption with three times the life expectancy.
