Visit some of our 300 parks, 226 playgrounds, 9 sporting reserves, 4 skate parks, 4 tennis clubs and dog exercise areas.


Bookings are not required to hold a family picnic in the park. Barbecues are available for free use at many parks. Visitors are asked to respect the safety and enjoyment of others sharing these spaces.

Approval is required to host corporate, community or private events such as weddings and naming ceremonies.

While a formal booking can be made for a specific location within a park, it does not give the hirer sole use of the location as the park remains available to the public at all times. The booking does, however, restrict any other formal events from taking place at the given location at the same time. A refundable bond (to cover potential parkland damage) may be required dependent on the activity, infrastructure and vehicle access. Please email the bookings team at for further information. 


Please note that gazebos and barbecues are available on a first come, first served basis.

Barbecues can be used between 6am and 10pm. Please leave the barbecues in good condition after use. Cleaning is undertaken by the City on a weekly basis. 

Water aerators in lakes and wetlands are on a timed schedule. They operate in summer between 6am and 6pm and in winter between 4pm and 6pm. Aerator times can be adjusted for special occasions.
