COVID-19 safety

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.
