Discovering flora in the bushlandBold Park's proximity to educational and research institutions, and the diversity of biota within the park, encourages considerable use for environmental education and research purposes.

Extensive flora, fauna and fungal surveys have been carried out by leading universities, the WA Museum, the Department of Conservation and Environment, CSIRO, the Department of Defence, Cambridge Coastcare and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority.

Bold Park is generally recognised as providing a representation of the original biota of the Swan Coastal Plain. For this reason, many interest groups, such as the Wildflower Society of Western Australia and Birds Australia, conduct activities in the area. Primary and secondary schools also frequently use Bold Park for educational purposes.

Please be aware that Bold Park is a fragile environment. All organised groups are to make a booking in advance.
