We’re ramping up for a new season of events at Holly Kai Park – there will be an announcement on the next Art at the Park exhibition, opening on the weekend of the 24th / 25th Sept, via the Hollykai blog very shortly – and there will be new events to follow it. In preparation, the last few days have been spent in making some final adjustments to the park’s layout, to ready it for everything we hope to be supporting.

Most notably for regulars to the USS regions by boat, and who may sail past Holly Kai, the Pavilion, our live events venue, has been relocated to the west side of the region, replacing the under-used beach front there. It now has dedicated moorings for boats, which include a 2-hour loiter time, and re-rezzing spots for boats if people sty longer.

Remember, the Pavilion is available for live music, charity and private events. We do not charge for using it, but simply request a donation to our adopted charity, Stand Up to Cancer. For information on booking, please see the Hollykai website, and the Pavilion booking form.

Moving the Pavilion has allowed us to introduce a new area to the Park: the Storyteller’s Circle. Located in the south-eat corner of the Park, Storyteller’s circle offers a circular path beneath fir trees, with places to sit and  a place to picnic. It is also a place which will offer special events in voice – story telling, workshops and more, when the central grassy circle will be converted for presentations and activities. We hope to kick things off at the circle with a special Halloween event!

As a part of the changes, the rocky area and waterfalls have been removed so that there is even move of a natural flow across the park from one side to the other. New trails and tracks have been added, together with a few more secluded cuddle spots 🙂 .

If you’ve not visited Holly Kai Park recently (or at all) I hope that you’ll find time to do so. We’ve had a lot of fun revising things, and in adding bits here and there, and we’re looking forward to kicking-off an expanded series of events, with the weekly music at Caitinara Bar, the monthly Art at the Park events, complete with Stories at the Park, and the upcoming Voice events at the Storyteller’s circle!

SLurls to the major locations are below. Do please say hello if you happen to see one of us there when visiting – and please consider making a donation to Stand Up To Cancer via the donation boards located at key points in the Park.
