The health and wellbeing of the Gold Coast community, our customers and City employees is our first priority.

We are receiving advice from the Federal Government and Queensland Health on a daily basis to inform our response to the Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

Parks are open with visitors encouraged to take recommended health and social distancing precautions.

The following City services and facilities have resumed:

  • skate parks and outdoor basketball courts open
  • sports fields and parks are open for use by families, friends and members of the same household (up to 20 people) for outdoor non-contact activity. Community sport and recreation clubs can return to 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.
