Marrickville Public School My Park Rules Opening

I am pleased to be joining students and parents at Marrickville Public School this Thursday, the 12th of October to open Marrickville Public School’s successful entry in the My Park Rules competition.

This comp had 100 entries, and more than 30,000 votes were cast across the nation. It is an enormous credit to Marrickville Public School, AILA, the 202020 Vision Initiative and the team at TRACT that Marrickville’s entry was judged to be the best in New South Wales, and the best entry across the entire nation.

This award winning design has become a reality, and is a great example of how we can work with communities across Australia to provide well designed parkland and green spaces.

As our suburbs are increasingly urbanised, providing well designed green spaces makes for communities that are happier and healthier. Every child in Australia should have access to quality green spaces, with all the benefits that flow as a result.
