The Gold Coast's beautiful parks, exquisite waterways and kilometres of uninterrupted beaches offer an array of leisure activities for residents and visitors.
City of Gold Coast manages many of the natural areas, waterways and facilities that support these activities.
The City's Active & Healthy program offers a broad range of free and low-cost activities that are fun, enjoyable and suitable for all shapes and sizes.
Dog exercise areas are provided by the City for dog owners. They are for the enjoyment of all, so please be considerate of people who may be sharing the area with you and your dog.
Our climate, stunning landscape and more than 2400 kilometres of bikeways and pathways link neighbourhoods, schools, foreshores and parks, and interconnect with major transit routes.
The City has more than 380 barbecues located in many parks and reserves across the Gold Coast. These barbecues are cleaned and serviced frequently by the City's maintenance team, making sure they are available for residents and visitors to enjoy.
