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

Bookings

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.

Facilities
