The wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority during the current COVID-19 situation. We are closely monitoring and responding to Government health advice and putting extra measures in place to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors.

Two of Perth’s largest and most beautiful parks, Kings Park and Bold Park, remain open to visitors. Given the size of our parks, there is plenty of fresh air and green space to share. However, we recommend ‘social distancing’ and good personal hygiene be practiced to protect the most vulnerable in our community.

In response to COVID-19, the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) is increasing the cleaning schedule of public restrooms.

For the health of fellow visitors and staff we ask that you stay 1.5 m away from others, do not enter buildings, cafes, playgrounds or shops if you are unwell and wash your hands regularly.
