Through the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998, BGPA is charged with the care, control and management of designated lands in accordance with publicly endorsed management plans. Current designated lands are Bold Park and Kings Park and Botanic Garden, both with high levels of community value and exceptional biodiversity. These Strategic Priorities are the result of consultation with key stakeholders.
The 1998 Act identifies the specific functions and relevant powers that govern the management of the designated lands and provide for the promotion of conservation of biological diversity generally. They include the provision of recreational and tourism services and facilities; conservation of natural landscapes; plant management, interpretation and display; biodiversity management; conservation, enhancement and promotion of cultural heritage; and education and research programs.
The Authority is supported by the State Government, the community of Western Australia, a wide range of sponsors, service providers and stakeholders, and hundreds of active and dedicated volunteers. BGPA strives to ensure the conservation of native biological diversity and cultural heritage icons of Bold Park and Kings Park and Botanic Garden, while providing for the diverse range of visitor interests.
