Project Status: When you need to do this
Public playgrounds and outdoor fitness areas are open for use in line with public health orders.
We’re cleaning these facilities regularly. We recommend you wash your hands and wipe down the equipment before and after you use it.
Fitness training groups of up to 20 people, including the trainer are permitted to train in the city’s parks.
Stay 1.5m away from others at all times, practise good hygiene and don’t train or use the equipment if you have any symptoms.

Some parks and open spaces in our local area are owned and managed by other agencies, where fees and permits may be required. These include the Royal Botanic Garden and The Domain.
