StoryWalk launched in Home Hill Park

A StoryWalk—when a picture book is told over a series of signs that are spaced out along a footpath or in parkland to encourage families to explore their community—was launched in the Home Hill Memorial Park early in April.

Approximately 50 people attended the launch event (pictured) which also featured a presentation by a North Queensland Beekeeper with some of his live stingless bees in an observation hive.

He also displayed some honeycomb and assisted in making bee hotels for children to put in their own back yards.

The current StoryWalk, which also encourages a love of reading, features Alison McLennan’s picture book, Hotel for Bees.

The signs, which are visible along the fence of Arch Dunn Memorial Rotary Park in Tenth Avenue and Tenth Street, will be up for families to read until May 5.
