Branching Out: walk and talk in Lockridge

June 8 @ 9:30 am - 10:15 am


Explore the natural delights of Lockridge with our guided stroll through the neighbourhood!

Densely built cities without many trees or green spaces absorb and hold heat, making them hotter than surrounding areas. Reducing the impact of this ‘urban heat island effect’ is important for protecting health during extreme heat periods whilst also improving the liveability of the neighbourhood.

Whilst taking a stroll around Lockridge, you will explore what trees are best suited for your neighbourhood and the position of where trees could be planted on your verge.

You’ll have an opportunity to discuss the guidelines surrounding planting on your verge and your front yard.

Come and experience a virtual transformation of what a Lockridge street can look like with more vegetation. Dive into the before-and-after simulation and get inspired to retain and plant more trees!

Light refreshments will be available afterwards.

The walk is about 900m in length and the terrain will consist of mostly footpaths and a concrete carpark.

Meeting Point: The workshop will begin in Woolgar Park. We recommend parking in the car parks next to Woolgar park.

This workshop is part of the Branching Out in Lockridge campaign, which is a series of free workshops hosted in Lockridge! To find out more and see the full list of workshops, click here.
