Friends of Bold Park Bushland Inc. logoThe Friends of Bold Park Bushland is a community group committed to protecting Bold Park. They played a key role in securing Bold Park as an A class reserve in the 1980's. Their current goal is to work with the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority to help create a world recognised urban wilderness.

The Friends take part in:

  • regeneration projects to maintain and improve the quality of the bushland
  • protecting the integrity of the park through lobbying and raising community awareness
  • open days that showcase how special Bold Park is
  • providing free guided walks through Bold Park bushland.


The Friends highly-regarded exhibit on Bold Park will be located at The Grove Library, corner of Stirling Highway and Leake Street, Peppermint Grove, from Tuesday 3 until Friday 13 April 2018. Copies of the Friends booklet on Bold Park will also be available at the library, free of charge.


Membership of the Friends of Bold Park Bushland has many benefits for you and the bushland. Members are invited to participate in bushwalks led by well known experts, attend informative talks, receive a quarterly newsletter, get involved in volunteer projects and much more.

Your membership will also enable the Friends to continue their commitment to conserving and enhancing Bold Park bushland, in partnership with the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority.
