Air your views on ACT parks, reserves and forests

With more than 1 million visits to the parks, reserves and forests around the Territory each year, the ACT Government is committed to maintaining and improving these much-loved assets for the community to enjoy.

Minister for Planning and Land Management Mick Gentleman said the ACT Government is asking users, both local and visitors alike, to participate in its Visitor Experience Satisfaction Survey.

“We’re keen to hear from as many people as possible about how they use the parks, reserves and forests, what they value about them and what they think could be improved,” Minister Gentleman said.

“It’s about ensuring we’re directing resources into the programs and facilities that our community wants, including walking and biking tracks, signage, toilet and barbeque facilities and conservation management.

“Protecting the unique and significant ecological values of our natural environment remains a priority,” Minister Gentleman said.

“The survey will be conducted twice yearly for the next three years, so that we can capture the differences in how parks are used in different seasons.

“As well as the online version, Canberrans and visitors may encounter one of our field officers out and about in the parks, reserves and forests conducting face-to-face surveys too,” Minister Gentleman said.

Submissions to the Visitor Experience Satisfaction Survey are open from today (Wednesday 25 May) until Wednesday 6 July 2022.
