Wyndham’s Parks and Open Space Needs YOU!

Would you like to grow your leadership and motivate others to make best use of our parks and open space?

If you have a passion to lead people in creating activities and programs to enhance Wyndham’s parks and open space we would like to hear from YOU!

Our accredited community leadership program will support you to work with others to enhance your leadership and contribute to “the social interaction, health and wellbeing of our community and protection of our local environment now and into the future.”

Using Wyndham’s parks and open spaces, you will work with others to develop ideas to encourage the community to become active in our parks and open space.

You will work toward developing skills to empower others to “provide an accessible and well-connected open space network which contributes to the social interaction, health and wellbeing of our community and protection of our local environment now and into the future.”

Wyndham’s Parks and Open Space Community Leadership program “Building Blocks” is currently recruiting for individuals and/or groups who want to connect with community through the creative use of Wyndham’s parks and open spaces.
