As a public park, Bold Park is free and open for visiting 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Whether you are planning a bushwalk, bird walk, photography shoot, school group visit or wedding, please take the time to organise your visit and contact the Bookings Officer.

The Western Australian Ecology Centre houses Bold Park staff and is open by appointment only. Visitor information, including hard copies of maps and brochures, is available at the front door.

In certain circumstances, such as days with fire danger, park facilities may need to be closed or restricted for your protection. We endeavour to give public notice to all planned closures and service interruptions.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, please use the search facility in the top right corner of our site or contact us for assistance.
