A Living Park
Communities Living in Balance with a Protected Landscape
The goal of the proposed Parrhasian Heritage Park is to sustain an area of cultural significance, outstanding natural beauty and rich archaeological sites while encouraging local communities to continue living and working within the protected landscape.
This ‘living park’ mission objective encourages natural, cultural and scenic resources to be managed for both long-term vitality and use as an essential part of local livelihoods and traditions. Success for the park will mean the enhancement of local residents’ pride and sense of stewardship, support for ongoing cultural activities, increased economic strength in the region and the protection of the natural, archaeological, scenic and recreational resources for future generations.
