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 maintain 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.

Percival Park is a small park at the rear of Rose Bay shops. The area provides a nice area for lunch overlooking Sydney Harbour or gaining access to Rose Bay tidal sands at low tide. A Sydney Water pumping station is located in the centre of the park.
