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.
Robertson Park is a large harbourside park located in Watsons Bay, opposite Gap Park. The large grassed area with some shade trees is popular with both local and international visitors for picnics, informal recreation and harbour and ocean viewing.
Outdoor wedding ceremonies are popular in the park with nearby Dunbar House offering excellent reception facilities or just a great spot for a good breakfast. There is a bandstand rotunda in the park dating back to the 1940s. The fenced playground provides shade sails and natural shade. It includes rubber softfall and features an open climbing frame, slide, gyro spinner and animal rockers.
