How can we help?


PLA has provided me a wealth of opportunities to meet and collaborate with other open space and recreation professionals eager to share their knowledge and has also allowed me to share my ideas in a cooperative and safe environment.

Louise, Consultant

It's important to keep up with new technology and techniques in managing Parks & Open Spaces and hear from industry leading operators about how we can do things more environmentally friendly and effectively. I also enjoy the networking and meeting people from the different organisations. It keeps me fresh and motivated to improve things.

Jason, Manager, Hume City Council

I have found the seminars and conferences run by PLA have provided a vehicle to create friendships and professional affiliations amongst the membership from as close as the adjoining council to as far away as interstate and overseas.

As technology continues to advance across the globe, there is a growing trend for cities to become smarter. This includes having wifi hotspots and technology integration in public spaces including parks.

These technologies, and the data they gather, provide the platform for new forms of urban analysis as well as the production of more efficient spaces. While there may be questions and reservations about integrating technology into public spaces, there is no doubt this trend will continue to grow.

In this online event, we will delve into not only the basics but also the more technical aspects of interactive play and explore and answer a range of commonly asked questions.

WHEN: Wednesday 21 April 2021, 12.00pm AEST
