Proposed Cable Car in Kings Park

The two major volunteer groups in Kings Park, the Friends and Volunteer Guides, have joined forces in opposition to the proposal to build a cable car from Elizabeth Quay to Mt Eliza.

The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Board is concerned that the proposal would impact significantly on the park, the showcase of WA’s extraordinary history and plant life.

Planned Giving – Create your own legacy in Kings Park

Kings Park is a truly wonderful and awe-inspiring place.  It is deeply treasured and loved by millions.  It provides a unique sanctuary for both plants and people.

What is it that inspires and captivates us the most?  Is it the annual kaleidoscope of colour that enthrals visitors with the magnificent wildflower displays, or the amazing views and outlooks that capture that sense of place, or taking a stroll through Kings Park’s precious remnant bushland, or sharing experiences with others at a special event for family or friends, or that place where you can quietly reflect and find your inner self?  It is all of these and more.

For 20 years, the Friends of Kings Park volunteers have made significant and valued contributions towards enhancing Kings Park.

Through partnerships with Lotterywest and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority we have also helped to deliver the stunning and world-class facilities that make Kings Park a unique and special place.

This very special place requires ongoing nurturing and the Friends of Kings Park is now asking both its members and the wider community to consider the option of planned giving.

Planned giving is the intention to leave a legacy for the future through a deferred gift in your Will.  Planned giving provides you with the opportunity to continue your support into the future.  It will provide the Friends of Kings Park with the ability to further assist Kings Park in a range of key and strategic projects.

Please consider the option of making a bequest.  Your generous and thoughtful gift can make a significant positive difference.

In addition to leaving a gift in your Will, you can support Kings Park by making major gifts during your lifetime that can help with construction of important infrastructure, buying essential equipment and by supporting scientific research projects.

You can support these programs by making provision in your will, and or a single annual gift or by making regular monthly gifts.  Where you desire a tax deduction, you may donate to the Friends of Kings Park Fund rather than to the Friends directly.  Please contact the office of the Friends for more details.

Your generous and thoughtful gift can make a significant positive difference.
