One week to rule them all

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Parks Week will get un­der way with a Lord of the Rings event at Kaitoke this Satur­day.

Held from March 7 to 15, Parks Week is an an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of the vi­tal role the green spa­ces play in en­hanc­ing the health of our com­mu­ni­ties and of our nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment, said re­gional coun­cil events ad­viser Catherine Wylde.

‘‘We want to get peo­ple from across the re­gion to visit and en­joy our fab­u­lous range of parks avail­able to them,’’ she said.

Events this year in­clude dog walks, moun­tain­bike events, gar­den and sun­set tours, some- thing for ev­ery­one, Wylde said.

The re­gional coun­cil is kick­ing off the week this Satur­day at 10.30am in Kaitoke Re­gional Park, where a replica of the Riven­dell Arch­way from The Lord of the Rings tril­ogy is un­veiled.

This fam­ily-friendly and fully ac­ces­si­ble oc­ca­sion will in­clude guided walks with in­ter­ac­tive Lord of the Rings char­ac­ters, prizes for best dressed and morn­ing tea, Wylde said.
