Parks & Reserves

​​​​​​​​​​​​In this section we outline what each of our parks and reserves spaces have to offer. 

Please note all our parks and reserves spaces are smokefree. We ask that club users and general visitors to our parks respect this policy for the enjoyment of all. 

Also note that the designated playing areas of all sports grounds are prohibited areas in our Dog Control Policy, so keep your dog off these areas at all times.

ALL our Council parks and reserves spaces are available to be booked for an event. Bookings for Cromwell Mall outdoor spaces should also come via this grounds booking process. Simply write the name of the park/space you wish to book on the first page of the Grounds/Parks Application FormBelow we have only included maps of some of our larger parks that have more than one bookable space within them. 

​​Please note when you send a booking form in it must be accompanied by a health and safety plan for your event. Linked in the forms below you will find a COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan word template, which has been developed to enable you to book Council-owned grounds fo​r training and competition games. Some indoor sports facilities may also require you to complete the form for court bookings. The template has been endorsed by all Territorial Authorities in the Otago region.  Councils will not accept a ground booking unless the template is completed.

Also linked below is a document from Sport New Zealand, 'Balance is Better National Sport Season Transition Guidelines' for you to read.  This document has been developed from information gathered from the Otago Regional Sports Alliance Group and similar working groups throughout the country.
