Parks Week

Parks Week Australia and New Zealand

Connect With Nature, 3-9 March 2014

Parks Week is an annual celebration of the important role that our parks play in contributing to the health of our communities. A range of formal and informal events take place across Australia and New Zealand during parks week - there is something for everyone. 

Parks Week aims to:
  • Highlight and celebrate the important role parks play - across people, communities, and the natural environment;
  • Encourage greater use of parks;
  • Celebrate the contribution that volunteers make to parks;
  • Promote the healthy parks, healthy people message;
  • Promote park management agencies and the work they do.
