Bold Park Management plan 16-21 cover

The Bold Park Management Plan 2016-2021 has been prepared with significant consultation from key stakeholders, including government, private organisations and the general community. In addition to a survey and public workshop, the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority sought public comment on the Draft Bold Park Management Plan 2016 - 2021 between 15 January and 18 March 2016.

The plan builds on previous documents and achievements to identify priorities for Bold Park for the 2016-2021 period including:

  • Development of a long-term vision and a 100-year framework plan for the Bold Park bushland, including measurable biodiversity targets

  • Ongoing ecological restoration of disturbed bushland in priority sites to aid their recovery and conserve native biodiversity

  • Provision of support and encouragement for community volunteer involvement in Bold Park

  • Conservation and enhancement of Bold Park, consistent with the BGPA Act, to ensure the long-term conservation of its significant native biodiversity values

  • Progression of a fire ecology research program to assess the best methods of bushfire risk management and conservation of natural environments on the Swan Coastal Plain

  • Improved emergency access and visitor safety with revised access and car parking off Rochdale Road

  • Continuation of horse riding opportunities with managed access on a reduced Bridle Trail, with use monitored for further feasibility assessment in the next plan period
