Ipswich City Council
Parks and Reserves
Ipswich City Council provides more than 5000 hectares of open space for your enjoyment. With more than 500 different parks and reserves there is an extensive range to suit the diverse recreational needs within our community.
Ipswich City Council is continuing to develop and embellish new parks and reserves to meet the different needs of the community as well as to upgrade existing parkland to provide modern and stylish facilities.
The Parks Search can provide you with information on Council's parks and the facilities that are available within these parks.
Facilities such as playground equipment, BBQs, natural areas, shelters and picnic areas are free for public use on a shared basis and cannot be reserved.
Other popular locations such as sporting fields, halls, chapels and some open areas have been set aside within parks specifically to cater for special activities, events and for commercial use. Any use within these selected locations will now require a Permit.
Fitness groups/personal trainers wishing to apply for a permit to use one of Council's parks for the purpose of conducting fitness/personal training will be required to pay a non-refundable application fee at the time of submitting the application. Please refer to Council's Fees and Charges.
Permit applications for fitness groups/personal trainers that relate to a park that has not been designated for special activities, events and commercial use, will still require an application and fee on submission, however, the application may not be approved.
Please refer to the Permit Information page for further details.
Why not take advantage of the wonderful trails within Council's many Conservation Estates and Reserves. See the Trails Guide links below for more information.
Please note: The hiking track leading to Flinders Peak within the Flinders-Goolman Conservation Estate is closed to the public until further notice.
