We welcome people to our parks during summer and on public holidays, but ask people to respect local residents and follow some simple rules.

Drinking is not permitted in any of our public spaces beyond 9pm, and before 9am.

Please also make sure you:

  • Take rubbish with you
  • Avoid glass
  • Carry a mask just in case and remember to keep your distance.
  • Respect the neighbours
  • Don’t peg down marquees. Use weights only
  • Clean up after your dog, and keep on a leash unless you’re in a designated off-leash area
  • Use the public toilets provided.

Yarra Council’s local laws officers will be out enforcing our local laws, and we are continuing to work with Victoria Police.
