How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

For the continued good health of our community and as a measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have:

  • turned off drinking fountains and barbecues
  • suspended bookings for our venues, parks or reserves until further notice.
Our playgrounds, outdoor gyms, skate park, netball courts, basketball hoops are now open and sportsgrounds are open to approved sports clubs. People should not gather in groups of more than 20, and stay 1.5 metres apart from others where possible.

Note: Playgrounds will now be included in Citywide’s Working for Victoria cleaning blitz which is funded by the State Government. Council will also undertake regular cleaning of all playground equipment and other high touch surfaces. We strongly encourage the community to still take their own precautions and practice safe hygiene. For further information on the cleaning blitz, visit Citywide's website.


Visit the library forecourt, featuring an open square with jacaranda trees and raised seating for small community events and performances. Bring the kids - it provides a play space for visitors to the Carnegie shopping strip, which includes engaging visual and auditory challenges (for children).

With our visual displays, your kids can climb, play, and learn sign language. A glow worm lights up at night and bookworms provide auditory and sensory cues.

Free Wi-Fi

Free Wi-Fi is available in the forecourt and library foyer.

Dog leash information

Carnegie Library and Community Centre forecourt and play space is an on-leash area which means you must keep your dog on leash at all times.
