If you're planning to use a public space, park or reserve for your event, you will need to fill in an application form. The booking process gives Council confidence that activities comply with necessary requirements and legislation, and events are undertaken in a safe manner. A confirmed booking also secures the space, and minimises disruption and impact on other park users.

You can apply online to use Council managed Parks on the Parks, Reserves & Recreation page. Fees may apply.
