We’re delighted that you want to join the National Park City Family.
Whether you plan for your urban area to join the National Park City Family or for it to become an official National Park City, you have come to the right place.
Here’s what you need to do next.
Make sure you have read the National Park City Journey Book. This document sets out 10 steps and 23 criteria for joining the National Park City Family.
Before registering you need to collect the names of 200 people who have signed the Universal Charter for National Park Cities. See how Adelaide have done this as part of their campaign here.
Once you are ready, please complete the short registration form so that we can stay in contact.
Your portfolio application should be creative, public friendly and must demonstrate that your city is ready to become a member of the National Park City Family or an internationally recognised National Park City. It must demonstrate how you meet or are working towards each of the 23 criteria that are set out in the Journey Book.
We recommend that you communicate with us as you progress through your National Park City journey and the development of your application. Doing so will create space for us to feedback, collaborate and avoid going in the wrong direction or any surprises.
Once your portfolio application is ready please submit it here.
