The Humpty Doo Village Green is situated on 20 acres of land donated to the Lions Club of Litchfield during the 1970's. Lions Club members, together with many members of the community, worked tirelessly landscaping the area, installing a bore, reticulation system, playground equipment and BBQ's.

Today the Humpty Doo Village Green is frequented by many community groups and local families who enjoy the well-maintained picnic and playground area. Litchfield Council took over the funding of the Reserve when it was established in 1985 but has a license agreement in place with Art Out Rural, a subsidiary of Darwin Community Arts Inc., to oversee the daily management of the Village Green. 

Community Garden

Humpty Doo Village Green has a long standing community garden that was established in 2011 under the guidance of the Committee. Since that time community members have actively participated in the operations of the garden. Access to the community garden is managed through community members and new community members are welcome to participate in the garden. Produce continues to be shared with participants and community members in general. The garden is locked to prevent theft and damage.  
Interested community members wanting to participate in the community garden are invited to make contact with Yvonne, on 0416 083 245 to find out about activities.
