Introduction

Canberra's parks and reserves cover more than 60% of the ACT, making Canberra a very special place to live. They include Namadgi National Park, Tidbinbilla, Molonglo River Reserve, the Murrumbidgee River Corridor, the Lower Cotter Catchment and Canberra Nature Park.

It's important we have strong plans in place to guide how we manage and protect our parks and reserves and strike a balance between nature conservation, cultural heritage and community use. Please see below for more details.

Canberra Nature Park (in progress)

The ACT Parks and Conservation Service has developed a new draft plan to guide management of Canberra Nature Park over the next 10 years. The park belongs to the community, so we were keen to hear the community’s views on the plan.

On 23 September 2019, the draft plan was released for a 12-week public comment period. Public information sessions were also held at several locations across Canberra. The submissions received will help inform the development of the final plan.
