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.

History

The park is owned by Sydney Water.  Percival Park was established in 1949 after Council negotiated with the then Metropolitan Board of Water Supply and Sewrage to obtain use of the land as public open space. Council named ( Council Minutes 12/2/1951) the park in honour of Mr C. E. Percival who was the Woollahra Council Engineer from November 1926 till early in 1952.
