  • Environment: Protecting our Precious Parks

    fireChristie’s created the ‘Parksafe’ BBQ in 1974 in response to the threat posed by camp fires to parks and nature reserves all around the world.

    Every year forests and the innumerable birds and animals that inhabit them are destroyed by devastating wild fires.

    Many of these disasters all around the world, are started by open fires used for cooking.

    Destruction of habitat is also a threat. Gathering loose sticks and leaves for a fire removes the leaf litter that insects live in, breaking a fragile food chain.

    Dumped camp fire coals scar lawns and damage pristine natural environments.

    These issues create massive problems for public park managers.

    Not only must they protect the flora and fauna, they must also find funds and manpower to constantly clean up these cooking sites.

    Each Christie Parksafe CC2* is fully self-contained with no exposed flames or sparks.

    There’s no need to gather fuel; no need to dump coals or hot embers. Cleaning CC2 is quick and simple, so natural habitats remain protected. And these benefits are not confined to public parks and open public spaces.

    Closed environments such as resorts, caravan parks and retirement villages have also turned to Christie Parksafe BBQs to keep their environments and their patrons safe.

    Christie Parksafe. began business as an Electrical Engineering and Contracting company operating on the Mornington Peninsula area of Victoria, Australia. In the early 1970’s they perceived the need for easy access to outdoor entertaining and conceived the idea of producing fixed electrical public cooking facilities in attractive environmental outdoor settings for public use. In 1974 they began selling these products to Municipal Councils throughout Australia; with the most prominent being the highly successful number along Alexandra Avenue on the bank of the Yarra River in Melbourne. In addition there are in excess of 500 units on Queensland’s Gold Coast and 500 units in Australia’s Capital, Canberra.:
