How do you assess whether or not you are healthy? Do you eat well, exercise a bit, and get plenty of rest? Asking these questions can help answer why you feel the way you do and believe it or not – we can do something similar with a park.
Sydney Olympic Park is a complex mix of building, paths and playgrounds alongside protected forests, wildlife and wetlands. How these and the people who visit them interact influences the health of the whole park. The location and abundance of animals and plants can provide a way of measuring what stresses the park may be experiencing and help us to devise a long-term health program.
Sydney Olympic Park is now 16 years old and due for a check-up. Join me and other passionate people and discover the interesting challenge of measuring the health of our parks environment. From counting birds and tadpoles to manipulating tree density and water flows, this is how we keep the park’s heart strong!
