Parks and recreation

Right of Use

There are currently over 400 sport and recreational facilities managed by the City's Recreational Services section. Organisations are able to book these facilities under the Right of Use (ROU) program.

To apply for ROU, organisations must complete an application form and lodge with a current Certificate of Currency for Public Liability Insurance. Applications are then assessed against the eligibility criteria, which is outlined within the ROU Terms and Conditions.

Successful applicants will receive a ROU permit and be required to pay an annual/ seasonal fee for ROU which applies to each individual facility required. Allocations for ROU are on the basis of user needs only and blanket bookings are not accepted.  The sport or activity that is ‘in season’ will take priority should more than one organisation wish to book the same facility for the same times.
