The ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Kings Park was honoured this year with the opening of the Ceremonial Walk after ten months of hard work and disruption.

Major works in Kings Park for the new Ceremonial Walk project were completed in time for the Anzac Day Dawn Service on Sunday 25 April.

Environment Minister Donna Faragher launched the Kings Park Ceremonial Walk as part of the Botanic Garden and Parks Authority's commitment to upgrading the quality of facilities and services in Western Australia's number one tourism destination.

The Ceremonial Walk provides a paved pedestrian link between the State's War Memorial precinct, the Western Australian Botanic Garden and the park's premier tourism facilities, and is surrounded by open grassed areas and landscaped gardens making it a more tranquil space for the community to enjoy.

Vehicle traffic has been re-routed away from the State War Memorial behind the restaurant precinct along a new road named Wadjuk Way that recognises the connection with the Indigenous people that used to occupy this land.

This change will result in a safer environment for visitors and further enhance the dignity and significance of this important historical precinct without compromising the original intent of the Park's founders over 110 years ago.

Fraser Avenue now terminates at its southern end in a new turnaround. There are several new drop off points improving access for people with mobility restrictions, and passengers on tourism coaches will still be able to disembark to enjoy the views and take photographs.

New pathways and extra lighting have been installed to improve pedestrian safety and a substantial new amenities block has been constructed next to the car park to provide modern facilities for the park's many visitors to this precinct.

Over 7000 Western Australian native plants have been planted in the display garden beds associated with the project, majority of which were propagated and grown in the Kings Park nursery.
