South Bank is a great family space, offering so much to do!

8. Book a council park
While most activities in parks do not need Council approval, you may need consent or approval to book part of a park for exclusive use; and/or conduct a specific activity in a park. For example, you plan on hiring an animal nursery or having pony rides at your birthday party, you will need to seek council approval.
You should make your application at least 10 working days before your activity or event. This allows time for processing and for council to discuss any changes to your application. Find out more here.
