Centennial Parklands Foundation's big contribution

It is with great pride that we can confirm this week that our biggest contribution to the Parklands' was officially realised.

$2.5M was paid to the Parklands for the extremely popular Ian Potter Children's WILD PLAY Garden and we marked the occasion with a giant novelty cheque, of course!

Chair of Centennial Parklands Foundation. Rebekah Giles, presented the cheque to Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust Chair, Tony Ryan, in the grounds of the Garden with the sounds of children, birds and water bubbling away in the background.

With the support of over 700 supporters, donors and sponsors, the Foundation was able to make the Garden possible, seeing it develop from just an idea in 2007, to a state-of-the-art nature play space opened in October last year.
