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.
