The Spring Reserve Roadshow event at Garfield offered a range of activities including Geocaching – a high-tech version of a scavenger hunt, play space, giant board games, and an opportunity to plant seedlings in the Garfield Community Garden.

The geocaching activity placed six items within the grounds of Garfield Recreation Reserve for participants to find using a geocaching application on their smart phones.

Many children found all six items during the two hour event.

These items will now stay in the park for other geocaching enthusiasts to find.

The Garfield Community Garden provided an opportunity for families to plant seedlings in their gardens plots including capsicum, zucchini, beetroot, herbs and flowers.

These plants will now be there for all to see at the official opening of the garden on Saturday 12 October.

Soon to attend the upcoming official opening of the Garfield Community Garden, Cardinia Shire mayor Graeme Moore said he was excited to see the local community enjoying all that the reserve offers.

“It was a delight to hear that over 60 community members, from children to parents and grandparents, enjoyed a day in the sunshine and got involved in all of the outdoor activities at the event,” he said.

“Well done to everyone involved in hosting this event and thank you to all our community members who made it out to Garfield Recreation Reserve for another instalment of our Spring Reserve Roadshow.”
