COVID safe summer

We need your help so we can all enjoy a COVID safe summer.

Please meet social distancing requirements at all times, avoid crowds and practice good personal hygiene. Stay at home if you're unwell.

Our staff and security personnel will be monitoring crowds at our beaches and parks during summer. If locations reach full capacity to the extent where social distancing requirements cannot be met, we will need to stop further entry until more space becomes available. For location updates check our Facebook page. We will also be updating our VMS sign boards with site-specific information.

Christison Park

The park is perched on top of the ocean cliffs, providing sweeping views of the ocean and Sydney Harbour. There are three fields used for rugby union, soccer and touch football, and one hockey field (No. 4). One of the ovals (No .1) is floodlit for night training. The park has three cricket practice wickets.

Two brand new multi-purpose courts are situated in the north-west corner of Christison Park. Both courts are suitable for Netball and Basketball with line markings and goal posts provided. The courts are available for use by the general public. Please show respect to other users and make the court available after 1 hour of use. Alternatively a booking can be made to secure the full court. No club, school or commercial coaching is to occur on the courts without a booking. Bookings are available Mon-Sun between 7am – 9pm. Currently Court 1 is set up as a netball court and Court 2 is a basketball court (a key tool must be collected through Council to change the goal post position).

Located along the northern boundary of Christison Park, there are five separate fitness stations which offer a unique exercise trail. There is also an interactive exercise station incorporating cardio and movable equipment. All equipment is accompanied by instructional signage.
