Use of sports fields is subject to current COVID-19 restrictions.

We update the information on this page at 8.30am and 2pm on business days. It is not updated after business hours, on public holidays or over the weekend. Advice due to wet weather is only a recommendation. It is not possible for Council officers to inspect all sports fields within all parks and weather conditions may change during this time. In these cases, it is the responsibility of the respective club onsite to determine playing and/or training conditions. Schools, clubs and groups who use the fields against the Council's advice are reminded that if they cause damage to the playing surface, they may be liable for fines and/or cost for repairs.
If you have queries about the use of the Council's sports fields, please call 07 5667 5972 during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
