As Bold Park is primarily a bushland conservation area that offers a taste of a wilderness experience close to Perth, the park is largely undeveloped.

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.

Prior written permission by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority is required to conduct an event in Bold Park or for an organised group activity of over 30 persons.

Contact the Bookings Officer for further information on venues and facilities available in Bold Park.

Toilets and refreshments

Bold Park has no formal toilet blocks or drinking fountains within the park. Facilities are available on the eastern side of Perry Lakes Drive in the picnic area.

If you are visiting Bold Park, you need to take your own refreshments as there are no food outlets within the park. Barbecues are available at the nearby Perry Lakes Picnic Area.

Seats and shade

In Bold Park, where the most popular activity is bushwalking, seats have been placed at intervals along the more popular walk trails, generally at scenic vantage points, to provide the opportunity to pause or take a rest.

Lighting

Please note that the majority of the park does not have night lighting and we recommend visitors carry a torch after dark.

Transport and parking

Bold Park is situated on the coast, close to the heart of Perth city and easy to get to by private vehicle or public transport. Free parking is available. Transport options are available to suit all visitor needs.

School Ball parking

Temporary parking on Fraser Avenue will not be provided for buses, limos and cars, and fines will apply.
