Millions of visits are made to Centennial Parklands every year for a range of activities. When you visit the Parklands there are some simple things to remember which will help ensure this place remains, safe, accessible and enjoyable for all.

Firstly, let’s here from a regular visitor to the Parklands…



A shared space

Centennial Parklands is a shared space. It’s a place we have a mutual responsibility to look after. Look after the natural environment, look after our heritage environment and look after each other.

As Ben said, it’s not just about rules and regulations, but about respect. Respect for the place and respect for each other.


How can you help to share the park

The Share the Park campaign is on until 21 June 2015. Keep an eye out around the Parklands for some pop-ups and surprises (a few new features and some old favourites return!) that will help to remind you of some of the simple things you can do to share this space.

Head to our ‘Share the Park‘ webpage now for all the information. Whether you’re coming to the Parklands as a motorist, pedestrian, cyclist, horse rider or walking a dog – there are some great reminders and tips for you.

As a bonus, during the Share the Park campaign period, you can also enter a competition to win a night staying in a beautiful cottage in Centennial Park!


Help spread the word (and the images!)

Spread the word about this to any family, friends and neighbours who visit the Parklands – and don’t forget to share your images with us!

We have a few surprises that will pop-up around the Parklands over coming weeks. If you like them, take a photo and share with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #sharethepark.


We’ll also be seeking your ideas and feedback

We will be running two visitor feedback projects during the campaign around access to Federation Way and the protection of the Federation Pavilion. Subscribe to our Park Notices eNewsletter to find out when these go live.
