Parkland: a position paper for political and other decision-makers

This advocacy Position Paper summarises Parks & Leisure Australia’s response to current issues nationally for the information of political and decision-maker audiences. Parkland refers to those parks and gardens which can be used for casual recreation (sometimes described as informal or passive) such as play, picnics, walking, exercise, cycling, appreciating nature or dog walking. These can include areas such as formal horticultural landscapes, natural settings and linear parks. A separate complementary Position Paper exists to suit parks and leisure professional needs.
