Many of our Christchurch parks have areas that can be booked for a picnic, event or other activities. Depending on the size and nature of the gathering and the level of associated infrastructure, an event permit may be required.
Fires are banned in our parks, however, gas-fired barbeques are allowed. We also recommend that you don’t let off fireworks in our parks. For details please see our Parks and Reserves Bylaw.
People are asked to refrain from smoking or vaping in Council-owned playgrounds and parks, including sports parks, per the Council's Smokefree and Vapefree Public Places Policy.
