The Toowoomba Region is gearing up for a range of activities for 2023 Parks Week which is set to kick off this Saturday 4th March and run until 12th March.
Toowoomba Region Environment and Community Portfolio Lead Cr Tim McMahon said that residents have plenty of opportunities to get out and get involved in 2023 Parks Week.
“We truly are blessed to live in one of the great regions in Australia for parks and open spaces and Council is partnering with a number of community groups to deliver some wonderful activities for 2023 Parks Week.
“TRC has around 368 actively managed parks across the Region, in addition to 567 open spaces and bushland parks so it’s no wonder residents are spoilt for choice in getting outdoors across the region.
“From an open day at the Charles & Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve at Highfields this Saturday to open days at Toowoomba’s Community Organic Gardens beginning on Sunday, there is plenty on offer for residents to get involved,” Cr McMahon said.
Many activities during Parks Week are free including Meditation in the Park at a range of venues as well as Open Days at Yarraman Creek across both weekends of Parks Week.
The Change Project will also be providing a number of health and wellness activities across Parks Week including group fitness sessions, Zumba, Park Run and walking groups in the park.
Parks Week is celebrated throughout Australia and New Zealand as a combined initiative of Parks and Leisure Australia and New Zealand Recreation Association.
