Greater Shepparton City Council officially launched its 2017 – 2018 Activities in the Park program today, running from September 2017 through to April 2018.
The program provides an opportunity for Greater Shepparton residents and visitors to participate in a number of free and low cost activities, encouraging people to be outdoors and get active.
More than 400 activities are on offer for everyone of all ages and ability to enjoy, providing a great opportunity to utilise the well-established parks, pools and outdoor spaces in the region.
This season’s program also features new activities that Activities in the Park hasn’t previously included, being the Arts. Some of the Active Art activities on offer include 3D Chalk Art, Sandcastle Sculpting and African Drumming. The Active Arts Program is provided through a partnership with VicHealth.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director Community Kaye Thomson thanked everyone for their involvement in the program, particularly the local businesses, clubs and associations for their delivery of activities and support of the program.
“I encourage residents and visitors to the region to look over the program and attend some of the activities that are on offer. The activities are open for everyone, so come along and enjoy being active in the outdoors,” said Ms Thomson.
