To help ensure Australia Day celebrations are enjoyed by all park users, Redland City Council has once again made special parking and management arrangements for the Wellington Point Recreation Reserve on 26 January.
An increasingly popular Australia Day venue over recent years, the arrangements include controlled entry to parking spaces within the reserve from 7am to 6pm.
Once the available parking spaces are full, Council officers will be directing vehicles to available parking spaces outside the reserve.
Council will run a shuttle bus service along Main Road between the Wellington Point shops, community hall and reserve from 7am to 6pm, to assist with access to the reserve.
The shuttle bus will provide a free pick-up service along the Main Road route to the reserve.
The reserve’s popular boat launching ramp will continue to be available throughout the day, but once the boat trailer parking spaces are full, users will be directed to use legal parking spaces outside the reserve.
Council enforcement officers will be on duty to ensure parking and other local laws are adhered to. Cars without trailers are not to park in boat trailer parking spaces. Police will also be on patrol to ensure public safety.
Additional Council staff will be on duty across the city’s major parks, including Wellington Point Recreation Reserve and Raby Bay Foreshore, to ensure the grounds and facilities remain clean and tidy.
