Recently we had a visit from Dr Harry Cooper, renowned Australian veterinarian and one of the hosts of TV show Better Homes and Gardens. He filmed this great segment in Centennial Park with Ranger Sam and some very excited youngsters.

Hope you enjoy this segment on summer bugs…

 

 

Education is the key

One of our aims at Centennial Parklands is to promote a greater understanding and awareness of the natural world with the younger generations. Teaching through hands-on experience and nature play is essential as we connect children with nature.

While we have a formal education program that runs all year round, we regularly run school holiday programs aimed at nature exploration. You can visit the ‘What’s On’ section of our website to see what’s coming up.
