Parks and Leisure Australia National Awards of Excellence
People and Parks Foundation's Active in Parks program has a brilliant online resource - www.activeinparks.org has several key functions to help all Australians get out and get active for improved health and wellbeing outcomes. The website promotes outdoor activities and events via #WhatsOnOutdoors, provides a platform for community groups and other service providers to register and promote their own activities/events AND furnishes service providers keen to branch out and adopt new outdoor active programs with the resources and guidelines to do so!
We were delighted to be announced as the winners of the Parks and Leisure Australia's 2015 Award of Excellence: Use of Technology for the Victoria/Tasmania region conference in Ballarat on 29th April. In October we attended the national Parks and Leisure Australia Conference in Sydney. We also attended the National Awards Gala dinner, and while we may not have taken out the top national prize for our awesome website, we still had a great time learning about the future of Parks and Leisure in Australia. There's a LOT to look forward to!
We'd again like to take the opportunity to thank all of our supporters and partners who have helped plan and develop our Active in Parks website, and deliver it to a national audience - Active in Parks really is Australia's first website dedicated to getting active outdoors.
Huge thanks must goes to all of our partners, we wouldn't be where we are today without contributions from a truly inspiring community of supporters.
Thanks everyone, now let's all get outside!
