Family-friendly workshops on outdoor spaces

MidCoast Council

The MidCoast is invited to attend fun and family-friendly workshops across the region in November to help Council develop an open spaces and recreation strategy.

“We all love the outdoors in the beautiful MidCoast region. Everyone is invited to contribute to this 15-year strategy. We want to get a fresh perspective on how the community uses these important spaces, and wants to use them in the future. This will help us confirm and prioritise their needs,” said Council’s Manager Strategy and Projects, Amanda Hatton.

A two-hour workshop will take place at Tea Gardens – Hawks Nest, Forster, Gloucester and Taree on a Saturday in November. There will be weeknight evening workshops in Bulahdelah, Pacific Palms, Harrington and Stroud.

Outdoor spaces included in the strategy range from parks, gardens, sports fields, playgrounds, dog parks, foreshore areas, walkways and cycleways to village squares and other public places.

“We also want to explore your innovative ideas to make our outdoor spaces more appealing,” said Ms Hatton.

We value your time. All workshops include a light meal and the whole family is invited.

There will be children’s activities and a colouring-in competition. There are great prizes for kids to win, including family passes to see Are We There Yet? screening at the Manning Entertainment Centre in March 2023.

If you can’t make a workshop, you can still take part. Visit the link above to have your say: you can complete the survey and post your ideas on the wall or the map.
