Virtual bird watching, art exhibitions, craft and exercising with Sydney Kings star Kevin Lisch are just some of the great activities now hosted online for Sydney Olympic Park LIVE.
At a time when many people cannot visit the Park for recreation and school holiday activities, Sydney Olympic Park LIVE allows unique experiences to be delivered directly into people’s homes.
Sydney Olympic Park Authority Senior Manager Marketing and Communications Brett Morgan said in past weeks a number of programs had been successfully launched as virtual activities, with an online Easter Egg Hunt on the weekend attracting hundreds of particpants.
“People are enjoying exploring the Park virtually, so we are adapting programs and activities online to allow people to engage with some of what the Park has to offer from the comfort of their desk or loungeroom,” Mr Morgan said.
He said Sydney Olympic Park was a world-class destination for sport and recreation, and it was also a rich source for education and learning.
“Sydney Olympic Park is usually a thriving hub of learning and discovery with excursions, school holiday activities, a Mini Park Rangers program and lots more,” he said.
“Every year more than 500,000 students visit the Park for sport and curriculum-based activity. We want to ensure those students can continue their educational experience with Sydney Olympic Park.
“So we are using all of our expert resources to ensure a broad selection of programs and experiences are available to people online.”
Sydney Olympic Park LIVE has launched with three channels, each featuring a range of content:
1. Arts and Culture
2. Learning and Discovery
3. Sport and Recreation
Content will continue to be added to Sydney Olympic Park LIVE regularly, and worksheets and other resources for children would also be available to enhance the virtual learning experience.
