Love the Park Share the Park: Three ways you can ‘Share’ Centennial Parklands
Posted: 29 March 2017
Giant horse shoes suspended from trees and an interactive hay bale maze for kids are just some of the creative ways Centennial Parklands visitors are being urged to share our popular spaces.
The annual ‘Share the Park’ campaign was launched today and will run until 18 April 2017.
Visitors are encouraged stop by and see the park transformed during the campaign period, which reminds users to ‘share’ one of Australia’s most loved public parklands.
Through research and regular consultation with park visitors, a list of key themes has been developed to drive the campaign and raise awareness of the importance of respect for each other and respect for the Parklands environment.
Here are three top ways you can Share the Park:
- Respect horse tracks and entrance ways: Give way to horses, and if riding abide by the Code of Conduct
- On-leash means on-leash: Get to know where the on and off leash areas are in Centennial Parklands – refer to the Parklands dog brochure or download our iPhone app for more information.
- Slow down: the speed limit is 30 km/h in Centennial Park for all vehicles, including bicycles.
“Millions of visitors come to Centennial Parklands every year, making it one of the most vibrant and diverse public green spaces in Australia,” said Kim Ellis, Executive Director Botanic Gardens & Centennial Parklands.
“The understanding that these Parklands are a ‘shared space’ remains key to them continuing as safe, accessible and enjoyable places to visit.
“This year’s campaign features ‘Love the Park, Share the Park’ turf art works, giant horse shoes around the Grand Drive circuit and a hay bale maze for kids, complete with some great Share the Park brain teaser elements!
“We’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from a wide range of visitors, who are telling us this year’s campaign hits all the right notes!”
Social media information and competitions are also running, with a chance to WIN a night of luxury in the Centennial Park Residences!
