Meet Lisa, the caretaker of Hammond Park. Lisa has worked at the park for 3 years, and a total of 7 years with CKB starting on the mowing team, progressing through to the street scape team, before landing her dream job. Being born into horticulture, Lisa realised her love for the outdoors, and her passion of animals at a young age. Lisa takes care of a variety of different animals at the park, from kangaroos, emus, a range of native birds as well as some introduced species. “I love welcoming the community into the park, I love the excitement of the kids showing their mums and dads the animals.” Lisa is responsible for the domestic duties like the bathrooms, litter, bbqs, gardens and general maintenance of the park and most importantly feeding the animals. Furthering her studies in horticulture with CKB, Lisa says the highlight of her career was spending 32 weeks at Perth Zoo being trained to be a Zookeeper ready to bring her skills back to Kalgoorlie-Boulder. “I’m really grateful for CKB, I believe have the best job in Kalgoorlie.” Thank you for keeping our park beautiful and our animals happy ready for our community Lisa!

All week we have been lighting up the Busselton Foreshore and the City Administration Building green to say thanks to our Parks and Gardens crew! During COVID-19 we were lucky enough to still be able to get out and about and enjoy our parks within the community. They help us to remain active, healthy and connected with nature. We have an amazing crew here at the City, and can't thank them enough for the great job they do! #GoGreenforParks #GoingGreenforParkies 23rd - 30th June
The City is joining Parks and Leisure Australia to recognise all park workers around the country who have maintained outdoor spaces that have helped us remain active, healthy and connected during COVID-19. To mark the occasion and say thank you, the City will ‘Go Green’ and light up Mindeerup at South Perth Foreshore and the Old Mill in South Perth every evening until Tuesday 30 June. Around 60 City staff from our Infrastructure Services team help to look after our beautiful parks and reserves. From our reticulation and gardens teams to engineers, streetscape, nursery, mowing and natural areas teams, there are so many people at the City who care for our outdoor areas to enable us all to enjoy the recreational and social opportunities they bring. To find our more about the City's parks and reserves visit southperth.wa.gov.au/parks. #GoGreenForParks #GoingGreenforParkies
Parks are essential for all of us to enjoy nature and fresh air every day, especially in the current climate of covid restrictions. Going to the park is even better when you can have some fun playing disc golf! There is a national initiative from Parks and Leisure Australia to acknowledge and thank the people who maintain these important public spaces #GoGreenForParks Thanks to Glenorchy City Council and Burnie City Council for maintaining our two favourite courses in Tassie! 💚 Show us your favourite 'Green' disc golf photo below! 🌳🍃
Kevin started work with the city in 1989 – 30 years and 7 months precisely. His morning would start at the library where he’d grab his pushbike and head over to Cruickshanks to complete his daily tasks before he'd visit the CKB office on Davidson street. Kevin was around to see NASA’s Skylab displayed at the town hall when it crashed across the region and was involved with the 2000 Olympic games when the torch came through the city. Throughout his time, Kevin has fulfilled the roles of Leading Hand and Acting Supervisor. It’s his love of people that keeps him in his job, the interaction he has with the community and the close knit team he works in. In Kevin’s words he’s “seen a fair bit, done a fair bit." Thank you for keeping our public spaces clean and secure over the last 3 decades Kevin! Parks and Leisure Australia #GoGreenForParks #GoingGreenforParkies

Have you met Tamsyn? Tamsyn is responsible for the maintenance of parks and roundabouts, play equipment and BBQ's, as well as planting garden beds around our city. Tamsyn has an obsession with plants and it was her mum who suggested that she pursue her passion and build a career in the Horticulture industry. What started out as a hobby at first has turned into a full time role with our Parks & Garden crew. Don’t forget to take a drive past the library and community centre shining green this week as we celebrate the work of our parks crew with Parks and Leisure Australia! #GoGreenForParks #GoingGreenforParkies
