ParksEast, on a occasional basis, pays the expenses of volunteers delegates attending events who are prepared to provide a written and verbal report to other members. This is seen as a cost-effective way of collaborating over gaining insight.
ParksEast periodically organises regional events. Following the success of a regional play seminar in 2017, on 11 October 2019 it organised a regional seminar on ‘Smart Parks’. The concept of ‘Smart Parks’ includes the incorporation of technology into play facilities, either to provide users with a better experience, or to provide information to councils so that they can argue the case for further investments. For more information about Smart Parks and early indication of any further events on this theme see the special Twitter feed dedicated to the topic.
