The Authority welcomes those wishing to participate in healthy activities and has a number of ovals and grassed areas suitable for fitness groups within Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
All commercial fitness activities require written permission from the Authority and must comply with the Terms and Conditions and Botanic Gardens and Parks Regulations 1999. Failure to comply may result in a penalty of up $1500 and/or the fitness trainer being prohibited from operating in Kings Park and Botanic Garden. Our regulations limit the impact of Fitness Training on fellow park visitors, nearby residents and the general conservation of Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
No booking is required for individuals to participate in recreational activities such as jogging, walking or cycling.
