New City initiative to entice kids into the great outdoors

To celebrate National Children’s Week, the City [of Subiaco] has launched a Nature Passport to entice kids to play, explore and learn in the great outdoors.

The passport was developed with Nature Play WA and includes six park activities, a wildlife safari and additional ideas of things to do outside.

Mayor Penny Taylor said the passport was perfect for families and children of all ages.

“The passport encourages kids to get curious and observe the world around them, and Subiaco is the perfect setting for this,” she said.

“We have a number of beautiful and diverse parks, reserves and quiet leafy streets ready to be explored by locals and visitors alike.”

Nature Play WA Chief Executive Officer Griffin Longley said: “Contact with nature plays an important role in children’s mental and physical health and wellbeing. Today’s children have a more sedentary life than any generation before them, which is why outdoor play is so important.”
