Book a park or reserve


Bookings are necessary if you wish to hold an event or organised sporting activity on one of the Town’s parks or reserves. This will ensure the reserve is suitable for the requested activity and that it is available during the times you wish to hold your event. It also ensures the Town’s Parks and Rangers teams are aware that your event is taking place. No other bookings will be accepted for the area you have requested, but the park may still be used by casual users (family picnics, dog walkers etc). The area you have booked will not be fenced off to the general public. 

To make an enquiry about availability or if you would like more details on a particular park, please complete the booking enquiry and the Bookings Officer will be in touch.  Alternatively, you can contact the Bookings Officer on (08) 9311 8111 or at

When your application has been received by the Bookings Officer, it will be processed and the relevant approvals gained.  You will be contacted should we require more information.  

You will be sent a letter confirming your booking with the relevant hire conditions, usually within 10 working days of the application being received (larger events will take longer). An invoice will be forwarded to you and payment is required as per the due date stated on the invoice, in accordance with the Town’s payment terms. 

If a bond is required, this needs to be paid prior to the event or on collection of the keys. On completion of your event, the area/facility will be inspected and providing there is no damage, the bond will be refunded via electronic transfer.
