We are very lucky to have such beautiful Parklands to enjoy, right on the doorstep of the city. While there are many strategies and initiatives in place to keep Centennial Parklands looking spectacular, every little bit of help goes a long way!
You can help us by adopting the ‘leave no trace’ approach when you visit the Parklands. But you can also help us by getting your hands (gloves) dirty this Sunday 5 March 2017 for Clean Up Australia Day!
Now in its 27th year, the great annual environmental initiative has seen 31 million hours dedicated to tidying more than 166 locations across the country.

We hope to see you there!

Nature play is not just outdoor play. It’s child-directed play that happens in a natural space, such as a park or garden.
