NEW BOOK CELEBRATES THE NARRABUNDAH
     LONGSTAY PARK COMMUNITY
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope Launches “Our Park Our Community” today
Today, Chief Minister Jon Stanhope will launch “Our Park Our Community: Stories from
the Narrabundah Longstay Park”; a book that celebrates the lives and community of the
residents of the Narrabundah Longstay Park.

“Our Park Our Community” contains profiles and photographs of park residents, and tells
the personal stories of their lives and relationships. The book was conceived in response
to the threat that park residents would be evicted from their homes last year, to show
the importance of the park community through the emotional connections of the people
who live there.

“Our Park Our Community” is a tribute to everyone who lives at the Narrabundah
Longstay Park, and their determination to keep their homes.
