GREATER Shepparton City Council is encouraging the community to get out and about and be active between September 2016 and April 2017, through the launch of the 2016/17 Activities in the Park program last week.

This year’s program offers more than 370 free and low cost activities across Greater Shepparton. With some activities including stargazing, kite making, traditional Indigenous games, stand up paddle boarding, parkour, group fitness, circus skills, social spin, messy play, local food workshop series, canoeing, barefoot bowls and movie nights at outdoor pools.

The program also features healthy lifestyle sessions providing practical skills on how to improve or maintain your health.

At the launch, Greater Shepparton City Council Deputy Mayor, Cr Fern Summer said, “Council’s Activities in the Park 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.

“Greater Shepparton has a number of well-established parks, pools and outdoor spaces available to enjoy for recreation and social purposes. The Activities in the Park program is a great way to enjoy these parks, meet new people and learn something new.”
