If you are ever unsure of where to take the family or what to do on the weekend... then the Active in Parks 'What's on Outdoors' webpage is one for you!
Australia has some of the most beautiful and accessible outdoor spaces in the world, yet for every hour we spend on outdoor recreation, we spend over seven hours in front of screens watching television or accessing the Internet! (Missing Trees: The Inside Story of an Outdoor Nation. Planet Ark, 2013.)
Active in Parks is a program managed by the People and Parks Foundation working closely with community groups, schools, sporting clubs and other not-for-profits to support you, your family, and your workplace to get active and connect with your outdoor spaces. In order to meet the growing health needs of the Australian population, People and Parks Foundation has developed the new Active in Parks website, taking a multifaceted approach to promoting active outdoor living in Australia.
The Active in Parks program can help to:
• connect you to thousands of outdoor activities across Australia through our What’s on Outdoors database at http://www.activeinparks.org
• give you ideas to get your family, school or workplace outside and active
• provide resources to help community groups and organisations to run Active in Parks programs
• provide a platform to help community groups and organisations to promote their outdoor activities, programs and events
Active in Parks now reaches over 100,000 people Australia wide through the Active in Parks website featuring What’s On Outdoors, as well as our supporting partners.
Active in Parks have been awesome supporters of us here at Leap into Nature! Its great to be associated with like-minded organisations that see the immense value of getting people, kids and families outdoors and being active in our local parks and beyond.
