Dillon Street Playground
Our beaches, harbourside pools and parks are open.
To provide increased evening exercise opportunities for our residents, sports lighting is currently activated from 5-8.30pm Monday to Friday at all of our sportsgrounds: Andrew Petrie Oval and Woollahra Oval 2 and 3 (Woollahra), Christison Park (Vaucluse), Trumper Oval (Paddington) and Lyne Park (Rose Bay).
A NSW public health order limits outdoor exercise and public gatherings to two people (excluding members of the same household). If you are fully vaccinated, you can attend an outdoor gathering of up to five people so long as all those at the gathering aged 16 years or over are fully vaccinated. Stay local.

Please maintain good hygiene and social distancing when using our fitness equipment and playgrounds. Mask wearing is mandatory when outside your home, except when exercising.
Our staff and security personnel will be monitoring crowds at the Woollahra Council beaches and parks. If these locations reach full capacity to the extent where social distancing requirements cannot be met, we will need to stop public entry until people leave the location and more space becomes available. Check our social media and VMS boards in our popular recreational locations for updates. Find out more about our COVID-safe summer initiatives.
We hope you enjoy our outdoor places and spaces.
This small local playground has lovely gardens and is great for local families.

Your Park, Your Design
Dillon Street Reserve is growing bigger! Council has received a 1300m2 parcel of land from Anglicare, the owners of the Old Scottish Hospital site. We have a unique opportunity to develop this precious open space to provide a range of recreational uses for the community.
We'd like our community to help re-design the park. There will be a number of opportunities for people to be involved, starting with a meet and greet that was held on site on Saturday 27 July. We used information from that day to help shape a survey, where we received additional feedback from many in the community. Our next step is to hold design workshops at Cooper Park Community Hall.
Parks and Open Space mean different things to different people, depending on stage of life and interests. This is a rare opportunity to expand the Reserve and for our local community to get involved in helping to design their local park.
