CARE PARK CONTINUES SPONSORSHIP OF LAUNCESTON CYCLING FESTIVAL

Care Park continues its long association with the Launceston Cycling Festival, taking out a general  sponsorship of what has now become an annual event.

The event, which is one of the city’s biggest tourist sporting events, will be held on 8 December 2019.

It is a showcase of the world’s elite in cycling including national teams, local champions and emerging juniors.

Care Park Tasmania Manager, Julia How, says Care Park is proud to sponsor this premier event that brings together a large gathering of Tasmanian’s.

The event incorporates the feature event, the Stan Siejka Cycling Classic, Australia’s premier criterium event for men, women, masters and juniors.

The race is run around a European style course set around the picturesque Launceston City Park.

All events including the 2019 Stan Siejka Cycling Classic, Elite Women’s Cycling Classic, Elite Masters Cycling Classic and Veterans will be raced around this exciting and challenging course.

The 1.1km course is expected to provide riders with plenty of physical and technical challenges and deliver an outstanding spectator experience.

The new course which was first ridden in 2015 is the toughest and most technically challenging course since the event began in 2002.

The punchy climb (up Lawrence St) peaking at 16% provides plenty of entertainment for riders and spectators alike.   The climb is followed by the technical “Peanut” roundabout.  The roundabout is a viewing must, packed with cheering spectators resulting in a European style cauldron of noise, atmosphere and celebration.  Upon exiting the roundabout, riders lead into a fast decent of Brisbane, Tamar & Cimitiere streets before it all starts again.

The event attracts some 20,000 spectators and some 8000 on course. If peddle power is not your mode of transport to watch the races, then Care Park has plenty of convenient parking on offer at Gasworks car park, Hotel City Grand, Hotel Grand Chancellor and Yorktown Square.

Julia How says, “Care Park has a long history of providing car parking in Tasmania and we are proud to support the communities we work in.

CARE PARK NAMED AWARDS FINALIST IN FOUR CONSECUTIVE YEARS!

Leading Australian car park provider Care Park has been named a finalist in the Parking Australia Outlook 2019 Awards.

Care Park entered the Outstanding New Car Park development category showcasing its Opera car park development in Budapest, Hungary.

The car park is a showcase of Care Park’s Australian innovation, technology and people, exporting these to Central Europe to revolutionised the customer experience at the Opera car park in Budapest which services the Hungarian National Opera, theater district and high-end shopping precinct.

The car park operated as a semi-automated and manual operation in a large 400 plus bay car park over 10 levels with dual two-street entry /exit points and was in a dilapidated state.

Care Park has utilized its experience, technology and innovation developed in Australia, with our Australian management team spending time in Budapest, to recruit and train a local management team who also spent time in Australia.

These Australian-developed systems, technology and expertise have fully transformed the level of parking service in Hungary.

In a further boost to Care Park’s presence in the Outstanding Car Park Development category, two other finalists in this category are car park developments managed by Care Park. These are: City of Stonnington – Prahran Square Car Park and Whitehorse City Council – Harrow Street Car Park, Box Hill.

CARE PARK’S CHAMPIONSHIP COMMUNITY

Care Park’s Triple C approach – company, customers and community champions the human face of parking to create a safer environment for parkers and rough sleepers.

Care Park has formed partnerships with Launch Housing, St Vinnies and our corporate clients to provide rough sleepers using our car parks a safer housing environment.

Care Park sales and marketing manager, Jenna White, held discussions with Launch Housing, one of Victoria’s largest providers of housing and homelessness support services to form a partnership between Care Park and Launch Housing which has reduced the number of rough sleepers at Care Park car parks by 40%  and giving them safer accommodation and housing instead of simply reporting them to police and councils to move them on.

Care Park understands that homelessness as a growing problem in major metropolitan cities. Care Park was Jenna White’s major sponsor in the 2018 CEO Sleep out raising significant funds for the homeless organisations that house and accommodate rough sleepers.
