      In 2015 a pilot study was completed by researchers from Deakin University, Melbourne, in partnership with Parks and Leisure Australia, which aimed to estimate the health, wellbeing and economic benefits from park use. Our findings suggest that park users derive a range of physical, mental, spiritual and social health benefits from their time spent in parks. The findings indicate that the majority of park users are willing to pay an average amount of $45.40 per annum for the provision of parks.

      Doing 'more with less' is a mantra familiar to many in the community services sector, with local government under particular scrutiny to meet community expectations while enduring constrained revenue and increasing costs. The temptation is to consider this phenomenon as new; it is not. This is change. It has happened in the past, it is happening now, and it will continue in the future. In some ways what has changed about change is the pace with which it impacts on personal and community life.

      Across the world, population ageing is one the most important social and policy issues we are facing today. In Australia the population has been on an ageing trajectory for over the past century and population ageing is well advanced. As the baby boomers move beyond the age of 65 years, the Australian Bureau of Statistics projects that the numbers aged over 65 years will increase by 84.8 percent, from 3.1 percent million in 2011 to 5.7 million in 2031 (ABS, 2013). In addition, the proportions of those aged over 65 years will also increase. In 2011 those aged over 65 years made up 13.8 percent of the total population and this is expected to increase to 18.7 percent by 2031 (ABS, 2013).
