Old Perry HouseBold Park has an interesting documented cultural history, dating back to the early 1800's. There are a number of sites in the Park that are considered historically significant to Western Australians.

Camel Lake owes its name to the fact that camels were quarantined at this site during the years of the gold-rush when they were imported for use on the goldfields. Distinct circular marks of tethering are evident on some of the trees. Ernest Giles rested and watered his camels here after his epic journey from Port Augusta to Perth in May 1875.

As Perth developed, Aboriginal people who inhabited the area were forced to find new campsites, one of which was at the south-east corner of Bold Park. A fig tree planted here remains as a symbol of those times.

In 1919, Perry House was built for the caretaker of the Endowment Lands, which was previously the name of a large portion of Bold Park.

In 1936, Bold Park was established as a place '...for the people of Perth' (Perth City Council, 1936). It was named after William E. Bold, the Town Clerk of the City of Perth from 1900 to 1944 (the longest serving Town Clerk for the City of Perth).

Highlights are provided in the Historical timeline.
