About the project

Active in Parks is an award-winning Healthy Parks Healthy People program that encourages interaction with nature to improve people’s physical, mental and social wellbeing.
Piloted by the People and Parks Foundation in 2011, with the support of Barwon Medicare Local and Parks Victoria, the program’s initial goal was to get Barwon residents healthy, active and outdoors.

Following the success of the pilot, and with the support of Medibank Community Fund, Active in Parks has now expanded to work across the country, reaching over 100,000 people Australia wide.

In addition to providing organisations and community groups with step by step implementation guides for its programs it also connects Australians to thousands of outdoors activities through its ‘What’s On Outdoors’ database.
