 JUNE e-News


Well that's a Great Big Green Wrap!

Wow, what can we say? The take up for the Going Green Campaign was truly astonishing and we thank every single one of you that got involved and paid tribute to our Parks and their People.

We would also like to acknowledge and thank our amazing partner GLG that got behind this from the beginning and also our good friends in New York and Commissioner Mitchell Silver for starting this campaign and our colleagues World Urban Parks for promoting it globally.

Finally, thank you Australia for going Green and THANK YOU our Parks and Parkies for keeping us connected and healthy every day of the year.

Watch this space for future initiatives linked to this campaign and #GoGreenForParks #GoingGreenForParkies!

From all the staff, Executive Officers, Regional Councils and Board of PLA, Thank You and that's a wrap (for now) 😉

Mark Band, CEO

Magical Parks

At a time when it is so critical our Australian children become more physically active, after spending many months in self isolation because of the restrictions placed on our lives due to the COVID-19 situation, PLA has an exciting opportunity for local councils to consider. Magical Park gets kids off the couch and physically active outside through mobile outdoor gaming. PLA has an agreement with Geo AR Games to market and promote the Game in Australia. Councils can purchase an annual licence and provide this exciting opportunity to their community and it is a wonderful way to create fun, physical activity in your open spaces. For further information check the website and facebook.

To find out how to purchase a licence contact Jeff Dry National Products and Services at or 08 8332 0130.
