Wellington Shire's popular parks and open spaces will host a jam-packed calendar of events to celebrate Parks Week from 5 to 13 March.
After many of last year's events were held virtually due to Covid, Parks Week 2022 promises kids' entertainment, forest therapy walks, outdoor gym sessions, markets and a music festival.
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye encouraged families to take advantage of the fun family-friendly events, most of which are free.
"We're very fortunate to have some incredibly beautiful outdoor spaces, and Parks Week gives people the opportunity to get out and celebrate them,” Cr Bye said.
“It's a great chance to put on your walking or running shoes, get your picnic blanket ready and head down to one of our parks to join an event.”
While some of the events require physical activity such as walking, running, riding or exercise, most of Wellington Shire’s open spaces are accessible for all people, including those with limited mobility or disabilities.
