Due to the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the introduction of Stage 3 restrictions, the way we use our parks and play spaces has changed.

Playgrounds, outdoor fitness equipment and skate parks are currently closed. This is to ensure the safety of our community in environments where facilities are often shared.

However, under the current COVID-19 restrictions, one of the four reasons residents of Melbourne can leave their house is for exercise. During this time, all of our parks will remain open for this purpose.

We encourage you to use this time to get out and enjoy exercising in our parklands. But don’t forget:

  • you can only exercise in a maximum group of two or with members from your household,
  • make sure that you are maintaining social distancing of 1.5 metres at all times, and
  • stay home if you are feeling unwell.

For more information specific to your local park, visit our Parks and Playspaces listing.

In Manningham, we are following advice from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) about coronavirus (COVID-19) and encourage everyone to visit the DHHS website for the most up to date information.
