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 will:

  • Not be accepting bookings for groups of more than 20 people (this will be reviewed on the 22nd June 2020).
  • Lawn bowls equipment at Packer Park will not be available for use.

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. 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.

Virginia Park provides a long stretch of green space which is ideal for relaxing, walking and spending time with others. There is plenty of grass to spread out on or throw a frisbee, and plenty of seating placed throughout the park. You will also be provided with great shade from the many beautiful trees that surround you.

Picnic shelters and BBQs

In addition to the extensive natural shade, the reserve includes a picnic shelter with picnic table and BBQ facilities. 

Dog leash information

Virginia Park is an on-leash area, which means you must keep your dog on-leash at all times
