Park closure information


Auburn City Council’s sportsgrounds are inspected on a regular basis to ensure they are fit to use.
All clubs, organisations and schools must ring Council’s Park Closure and Wet Weather Line on 9735 1299 before using any sportsground to confirm that it is open and available for use.
In periods of wet weather sportsgrounds can be closed in mid-week at short notice.
The Park Closure and Wet Weather Line is updated each week day by 12.00pm.

Club responsibilities 

If sportsgrounds are closed by Council, clubs and organisations do not have the authority to approve their use. 
Council’s decision on whether to close a sportsground will be based on the likelihood of injury to players, the likelihood of damage to the playing surface and the prevailing weather forecast.
If Council’s ground closure instructions are ignored and play goes ahead, the user will be responsible for the full cost of repair to the field(s) and their usage arrangements may be terminated.
Even if Council deems a sportsground to be open at 12.00pm on Friday, clubs and organisations don’t have to play if rain occurs later that day or during the weekend and injury to players or damage to the sportsground becomes a possibility.
For more information regarding park closures please contact:
Council's Recreational Parks Supervisor on 0408 405 101 or (02) 9735 1222 or Council's Open Space and Recreation Coordinator on (02) 8745 9735  during business hours - 8am to 4pm.
