Western Australians encouraged to support Perth’s Kings Park and Botanic Garden

Western Australians are being encouraged to support Perth's Kings Park and Botanic Garden by completing a community survey which is open until 31st January.

The survey seeks the views of everyday Western Australians about the management of the park for the next five years and beyond. Feedback from the community survey will inform the draft Kings Park and Botanic Garden Management Plan 2020-2025.

Western Australia Environment Minister Stephen Dawson advises "Kings Park belongs to the people of Western Australia and it is important we consult with the community on its future. The park has a long history of involving the community in the care of the park and I look forward to seeing this continue.

"I encourage Western Australians to complete the survey and contribute to this important process."

Kings Park is a world-recognised botanic garden, parklands and urban bushland that welcomes more than five million visitors annually, conserves and celebrates Western Australia's biodiversity, and promotes wellbeing and local identity in partnership with the community.

The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA), which manages Kings Park, has recently established five strategic priorities for the next five years:

  • Truly local experiences: Immersing visitors in experiences of nature and local identity.
  • Community wellbeing: Encouraging community health and social inclusion through connection to nature, culture and identity.
  • Culture and heritage: Conserving, enhancing and celebrating the cultural and natural heritage of our parks.
  • Science and conservation: Protecting local biodiversity and tackling complex environmental challenges facing our world.
  • Western Australian Botanic Garden: Conserving and enhancing the WA Botanic Garden as an iconic cultural, educational and research institution.

Five-year management plans are a legislative requirement for BGPA. The draft Kings Park and Botanic Garden Management Plan 2020-2025 will be available for public comment in May 2020 with the final plan submitted to the Minister for Environment for approval in mid-2020.

The survey can be completed online and is available at http://www.bgpa.wa.gov.au until 31st January 2020.
