Brush off your gumboots and grab the camera, Parks Week is on the horizon.

The Invercargill City Council and Department of Conservation are firing up the barbecue and dusting off their tongs for the annual festival next month.

On Sunday, March 9, the two organisations will host a barbecue in Queens Park, give guided tours, hold a family quiz and give out orienteering maps to mark the occasion.

Council parks manager Robin Pagan said the event attracted more than 50 people last year, a number they hope to improve on this year. The festivities will run from noon to 3pm.
