Social recreation

Council's community parks are generally free for the whole community to use and enjoy. Use of these facilities is therefore on a first come, first served basis and they cannot be booked for exclusive use. This applies to park benches,  barbecues, seats and other facilities. For picnics or private (i.e. not corporate) gatherings, you do not need to notify Council if the group is less than 80 people, unless you wish to have a jumping castle, then you will need to complete a Social Recreation application form.

If you would like to hold a corporate event or large family gathering to celebrate a special occasion for over 80 people you will need to complete an Event Bookings application form.
