The partly fenced area in the centre of Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi contains rare species of native vegetation, including Spear grass, Early Nancy, Tiny Star, and Garland Lily.

The area was fenced in 2012 (at first temporarily) in order to prevent trampling during the annual car racing event.

The City Council has a formal management plan in place with the State Government Environment department to protect these species.

The management plan involves more substantial permanent fencing, protection of butterfly habitat within the park, and a commitment to restore the site to resemble the nationally threatened environment described as ‘Grey Box Grassy Woodlands and Derived Native Grasslands of South Eastern Australia’.
