Introducing Our Nature Play Space Workshop Leader

At Nature Play QLD we know that developing nature play spaces within an educational setting or local park environment can seem overwhelming, so to help you achieve this we have developed workshops lead by industry leaders.

It's our pleasure to introduce Angela Wright to you.

Angela works alongside a specialist in Landscape Architecture to deliver our Nature Play Spaces Workshops. 

With 28 years experience working in local government, Angela is well versed in advocating and planning for outdoor recreation places, spaces, programs and services. 

Angela works with Nature Play QLD to help advocate for children to have better and more meaningful access to natural areas for a whole range of benefits including play.

In addition to her work with Nature Play QLD, Angela is the Principal Advisor Policy and Strategy for the Redland City Council City Spaces Group, and is on the management committee of Parks and Leisure Australia (QLD) and the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation. 

Our Nature Play Spaces Workshops will provide you with the tools to transform the outdoor play space at your school, educational centre, park or community space, into a nature play space that:

  • Keeps children physically active
  • Improves children’s overall wellbeing
  • Engages and enchants children in outdoor play for longer periods of time
  • Increases resilience
  • Builds risk assessment awareness
  • Develops strong connections with nature
  • Grows children’s social capacity
  • Improves and refines children's physical skills

The Workshops are aimed at grown-ups from schools, kindergartens or daycare centres, local government, community organisations and community activists, landscape architectures and more!
