Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. It is rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture and offers innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park, managed by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority, has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education.

Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora. Two thirds of the 400 hectare park is protected as bushland and provides a haven for native biological diversity.

Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Swan and Canning Rivers, the city skyline and the Darling Ranges to the east. Bushland walk trails, immaculate gardens and parklands and a variety of children’s discovery play areas can all be found in Kings Park. The Visitor Information Centre, free daily guided walks, Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop, cafes and public transport are easily accessible. Kings Park is home to Kings Park Education, Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park and the annual Kings Park Festival.

More information on management of the park is available in the Kings Park Management Plan 2021-26 (extended to cover 2020)
