Bold Park is one of the largest remaining bushland reserves in the metropolitan area. From woodlands to coastal dunes, the park is a sanctuary for people, plants and wildlife. It offers a unique setting to enjoy the bush and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, in the heart of the Western suburbs. With 15 kilometres of walking trails, there are plenty opportunities for bushwalking and enjoying nature.
