The Cooks River Alliance is holding their annual Cooks River Day Out, this time at Steel Park in Marrickville South.  Expect crowds.  Last year’s event was great & this is a busy park anyway.

I wrote about last year’s event here – http://bit.ly/1KBDWjo

There will be live music, art & craft, a jumping castle, food stalls, plus kayaking & cycling tours.  There will also be education about Aboriginal traditional & contemporary ecological knowledge & how to maintain & enhance the river.
