Get snap-happy in some of our lesser-known parks and reserves, and be in to win!
As part of Parks Week, NPDC is encouraging locals to spread their wings and hunt out public parks that they might not have visited before.
“We’ve got 1,600 hectares of parks and reserves throughout the district but we’re creatures of habit and we tend to stick to the big ones, like Pukekura Park, and those nearest home. With this competition, we’re giving people a prompt to visit some of our parks that they might not even know about,” says Manager Parks and Open Spaces Conrad Pattison.
“We have heaps of cool public spaces from Tongapōrutu to Tariki. Pick a few to visit and make it a fun family activity.”
NPDC is giving away two family passes to the Todd Energy Aquatic Centre. To enter the competition, take a photo of yourself at one of the listed parks and reserves and send it to NPDC through Facebook Messenger (along with your name, email address and phone number). Each photo submitted is a single entry.
Entries close on 15 March, after which the two winners will be contacted by email.
Hundreds of organisations across Australia and New Zealand are holding events to celebrate the vital role that parks play in creating liveable cities and thriving communities. Parks Week 2023 (6-12 March) is focusing on how spending time in our parks and open spaces improves our wellbeing.
