Use a barbecue in a park, reserve and beach

COVID-19 Alert Level 2 – Parks and facilities information

Under Alert Level 2, all public toilets, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, golf clubs, skate parks, pump tracks, BBQs and other facilities within our parks and open spaces will reopen to the public. 

Aucklanders planning to use these facilities should wash or sanitise their hands before and after use, and keep two metres away from other users. Do not use these facilities or equipment if you are feeling unwell. Where safe physical distancing may not be possible, the use of a face mask is recommended.

Use the NZ COVID Tracer app to manually record your visit to our parks, beaches, toilets and open spaces. Follow the latest government advice on covid19.govt.nz.

Take note of the following when using barbecues in our parks, reserves or beaches:

  • You cannot take coal or wood burning barbeques into parks, reserves or beaches.
  • You can take your own gas barbecue into parks and reserves, but you must not use it near or under trees.
  • All open flamed barbecues should be elevated at least 30cm off the ground.
