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.
Consistent with Government health directions, 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.
For the health of fellow visitors and staff we ask that you adhere to physical distancing requirements where possible, do not enter buildings, cafes, playgrounds or shops if you are unwell and wash your hands regularly.
In response to COVID-19, the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) is increasing the cleaning schedule of public restrooms.
BGPA will request contact tracing details of the visitors to Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop, Kings Park Education, Biodiversity Conservation Centre, Wanju Marr, Visitor Information Centre and Kings Park Administration Building.
Contact registration via the SafeWA mobile app and location QR codes is required for Aspects of Kings Park and in cafes, and is encouraged for all guests attending the other listed locations. Minor/dependants are able to be registered via the QR code when an adult/carer completes the process.
