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:

  • closed all playgrounds and outdoor fitness equipment
  • turned off drinking fountains and barbecues
  • closed all sportsgrounds to all sports clubs
  • suspended bookings for our venues, parks or reserves until further notice.
The Australian Government has announced new limits on all non-essential gatherings — you can only go out for personal exercise in our parks on your own or with one other person.
