PaRC Parks and Recreation Collection


The Parks and Recreation Collection (PaRC), has been made possible with the support of an educational trust fund established by the Australian Institute of Parks and Recreation (AIPR) in February 1974. Parks and Leisure Australia, successor to AIPR, sincerely thanks the Trustees of the fund for their initiative in establishing the project:

  • Dr Anne Binkley
  • Mr Peter Nicholls
  • Mr Ray Steward
  • Mr Ken Trafford.
We also acknowledge the service of the late Trevor Arthur, Chairman of the Trustees until his passing in 2009, for curating the Trust over many years.
