Social park gatherings and private functions

Use this form to book a park for social gatherings and private functions for more than 50 people or if you intend to take any infrastructure other than table, chairs and a small marquee into the park (examples of infrastructure that will attract a fee and require approval include inflatable equipment, jumping castle, animal related or amusement activities, marquees larger than 3m x 3m).

If applicable, park fees will be invoiced after City officers assess your application.

No booking is required if your gathering is a group of 50 or less people using the facilities in the park and no infrastructure is being taken into the park.

Fees
Booking fees are non-refundable.
Park booking: $108
Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens booking: $277

Your booking will ensure that there are no other large group bookings accepted for the same time and location. Bookings also ensure we can provide equitable access to the park. Any approval of a booking does not guarantee exclusive use of the area and its facilities, so full cooperation with others who also have permission to use the park is required.

City of Gold Coast keeps its parks and gardens tidy on a routine maintenance program. We cannot provide special mowing or servicing of the area before your event. The City cannot control leaf or other debris from people using the area before your event. Under no circumstances will the City issue park gate keys or unlock gates for private functions such as weddings, birthday parties and/or social gatherings.

Please note that if your booking is related to Broadwater Parklands, use our online form below to book this park. Broadwater Parklands offer exclusive use areas (fees apply). The Rotary Education Pavilion is now available to book for educational activities only (no private social functions) at the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens. Please select "Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens - Rotary Pavilion" from the drop down menu on the booking form.

Use this online form to book a park for a social gathering or private function.
Please note: the application fee is non-refundable.

Book online

Events and gatherings which have infrastructure or over 50 attendees that do not have a booking or are in breach of any of the terms and conditions for use of City of Gold Coast controlled parklands may be penalised by City Local Law Officers under Local Law No. 9 (Parks and Reserves) 2008.

Please read our terms and conditions prior to completing the application form to ensure the correct form is being submitted, all appropriate information is provided, and you are aware of any bonds, permits and/or conditions that may apply to your usage. All details must be completed for the application to be processed.
