Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) updates

All Gold Coast parks are open with patrons required to observe appropriate social distancing at all times. Regular cleaning of facilities remains in place and soap dispensers are available in some public amenities in our most popular parks.

Park bookings are currently being accepted for weddings and social gatherings that have guest numbers in line with the Queensland Government Roadmap to Easing Restrictions. If the event is being run in its entirety by a business that operates under the COVID Safe Framework, please provide business name at time of booking.

Community sport and recreation clubs can continue activity, as long as they meet the Queensland Government COVID-19 restrictions. This includes the completion of all the requirements documented in any associated Industry COVID Safe Plan before activity begins. Visit Queensland Government – Return to Play for details.
