Diarama park: Conservation Volunteers

Conservation volunteers recently completed the landscaping of Diarama park.  The park features in various media and is a story in the Town Council magazine (inserted in last weeks Alice Springs News).

I visited the park the other morning.  In one word, ‘magnificent’.  The landscape, design, choice of sand and materials and features is breathtaking.  The full colour red of the Sturt Desert Peas blends in with the overall concept. 

The volunteers designed the concept, submitted it to the Town Council for approval, and facilitated the project.  There are many skills involved, and it is something that all involved in the project can be proud of.  Practical achievements like this instill a sense of value in terms of the skills developed.

    Hi Anne,
    This pic was taken from the top part of the hill. In the middle are Sturt Desert Peas that are hardly visible in this pic. The park looks different to when I last visited and needs some work on it.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your effort… Nice photo.

    I like you Flickr photos (the ones in the right side) very much indeed, with the red desert. Uniquely Australian landscape somehow. Particilarly this one. Very special landscape…
