Parks and Bushland Reserves

As part of the Roadmap to reopening, our playgrounds and outdoor gym equipment are open from 14 September.

Skate parks remain closed.

Daily exercise has been extended to a maximum of two hours across max two sessions, but we still need to wear our masks, maintain 1.5m distance, exercise within 5km of home and get tested if we have symptoms.

Visit the DHHS website for more information.


The City of Whitehorse has more than 350 beautiful parks and 20 bushland reserves catering for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, children and adults.  

Many of these areas contain natural remnants of the original vegetation that existed before development.

Bushland Reserves provide a home for local native wildlife and help preserve wildflowers and other indigenous vegetation.
