School Holiday Guided Walk: ELS Hall Park & Tree Planting

School holiday activity for families with pre-school and primary school children. Learn about the importance of trees and preserving our natural environment.

Starting at ELS Hall Park, we will work our way along to learn about the area and about our native flora and fauna in suburbia.

Following the walk, there will be a tree planting session at Greenwood Park where you can make your own contribution towards the environment and improve the wildlife corridor along Shrimptons Creek for small birds.

All plants, tools and gloves will be provided for the tree planting.

Meeting Point: At the Ryde Community Sports Centre near the amenities building. The walk will commence and conclude at the same location. 

Parking: Limited parking available in local surrounding streets. Limited 3P parking spots also available on site

Suitability: Easy grade walk suitable for families with pre-school and primary school aged children who are competent walkers. Walk distance is approximately 2km in duration so a basic level of fitness and mobility is required.

This walk is stroller/pram friendly. No dogs or pets. No smoking.
