Glenthorne Partnership’s contribution celebrated at Parliament House

The Glen­thorne Part­ner­ship Group has made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion toward the cre­ation of Glen­thorne. Read about the event which cel­e­brat­ed their efforts.

Mem­bers of the Glen­thorne Part­ner­ship and staff from Nation­al Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice attend­ed a cel­e­bra­to­ry din­ner at Par­lia­ment House in June host­ed by Min­is­ter for Envi­ron­ment and Water David Speirs.

The event acknowl­edged the part­ner­ship group’s sig­nif­i­cant and valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the cre­ation of Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta.

While the din­ner marked the end of the Glen­thorne Partnership’s active role in the project, mem­bers of the part­ner­ship will remain involved in rel­e­vant projects and activ­i­ties as the cre­ation of the park con­tin­ues to unfold.

The part­ner­ship was inte­gral in devel­op­ing the impor­tant vision for Glen­thorne and were heav­i­ly involved in the 2019 com­mu­ni­ty open days which helped to shape the park’s mas­ter plan.

The Glen­thorne Part­ner­ship was estab­lished in 2018 to pro­vide impor­tant com­mu­ni­ty insight, ideas and per­spec­tives, and help make deci­sions to ensure the park met com­mu­ni­ty needs and expectations.

The group includ­ed com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers with con­nec­tions to sur­round­ing Friends of Parks’ vol­un­teer groups, the Kau­r­na com­mu­ni­ty, the City of Mar­i­on, the local busi­ness asso­ci­a­tion and local R to 12 school.
