Welcome to Parks Forum
Parks Forum is the peak body for park management organisations, with members across Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada and the USA.
Our vision is for a strong and vibrant parks industry recognised and supported by the whole community. In these pages, you will find a wide range of products and services designed to support and promote effective management of parks whether they are smaller urban parks, regional parks or wilderness and protected areas.
Our parks are the storehouses of our future.

The Peer Review Program is offered to member agencies to enhance management effectiveness.
A team of parks leaders works with the agency to review an aspect of the agency, or the whole agency, within seven categories of business excellence. The investigation identifies key strengths and opportunities for improvement.
A report including the peer assessment, recommended actions and an indication of the current standard of business excellence is provided to the host agency.

Parks Forum supports a series of networks through which our members interact to work on projects, produce products and create workshops and seminars.
These networks include our Standing Committees which provide leadership of projects, the the Parks Volunteer Network, Young Leaders Committee, Regional parks managers’ networks, Indigenous Working Group and the International Urban Parks and Green Space alliance.
