About us

Visit your local park

The Gold Coast has many beautiful parks that are just waiting to be discovered. Pack a picnic, grab your friends and family and go and explore our very own natural playground.

Parks are a place of adventure and discovery, peace and tranquility, recreation and play. In them, we find a sense of enjoyment, strong community spirit and a sense of belonging. So what are you waiting for? Go and discover your own little piece of nature....


About Gold Coast Parks

The Gold Coast Parks team manage and maintain over 2,000 parks and natural areas. We take pride in every park throughout the city, whether big or small.  Click here to read a fantastic article by Dwayne Grant of the Gold Coast Bulletin, about the special meaning park naming and dedications have to the community.

As well as looking after our wonderful parks, we also manage recreational facilities, skate and bmx parks and open spaces.  Our natural areas management program protects the Gold Coast's conservation areas. 

Gold Coast Parks develop and implement programs to keep local residents active and social, including our Active & Healthy Program, NaturallyGC environmental educational workshops, Vibe Youth Program and many more.  We also contribute to our cities walkability, cooling and beautification through our greening and street planting program.
