Residents and visitors to Canterbury-Bankstown now have the location of popular attractions and little-known gems at their fingertips, after the launch of an interactive parks map.
Mayor Khal Asfour said with more than 588 parks to visit, it can be difficult to know which ones to explore first.
"The digital map is an easy way to find parks, nature trails, bike paths, dog parks, murals and public art, playgrounds and other facilities such as barbecues, amenities, and seating," he said.
"We wanted to make it easy for people to jump on our website and find exactly what they’re looking for with just a click of a mouse.
"There is also an option enabling you to zoom in on the map and hover over one of the pins, with photo of the park popping up, with its name and location.
"Alternatively, you can scroll down the list to find the park you’re looking for. Beside each name is a legend that tells you what types of facilities and amenities the park has."
Mayor Asfour said the map will be particular useful for people with disability.
"The map enables families and carers to see which parks have an all-abilities playground and equipment, sensory gardens, all-abilities amenities and disability facilities," he said.
"We want residents and visitors alike to have the most enjoyable experience possible when they visit the City’s parks.
"This is just another way we are becoming smarter in presenting information as part of our Smart City journey.
"We have used technology to provide information to our community in a user-friendly, simple, organised, interactive and innovative way.
"Stay tuned for more to come."
