Sports field closures

City of Gold Coast’s Recreational Services will endeavour to keep our sport and recreational facilities open as often as possible, however at times they may be recommended for closure due to wet weather, maintenance or field renovations. For details of current sports field closures view the table below.

Details of sports field closures due to renovations can be found on our renovation schedule.

View the possible reasons for sports field closures below.

Schools, clubs and groups who use the fields against the City's advice are reminded that should they cause damage to the playing surface, they may be liable for fines and/or cost for any damage caused.

As this information is updated at 8.30am and 2pm on business days (if there are any changes) and is unable to be updated after business hours or over weekend, please contact your club if weather conditions alter during this time, as they will determine playing and/or training conditions. 

Should you have any queries regarding the use of the City's sports fields, please call 07 5667 5972 during business hours or email
