Other planned events: Lane Cove National Park - Increased visitation
This is a popular location and will close at short notice if needed to ensure visitation levels do not exceed safe capacity required by COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.
We encourage you to:
- Plan your visit outside of the peak periods of 10am to 3pm
- Check this alert before leaving home and again before arriving at the park.
- Be prepared to move on if it is no longer possible for you to park your vehicle or maintain a COVID-safe distance from other visitors.
From Thursday 31 December 2020, the maximum group size for an outdoor gathering will be reduced to 30 people, including children. Groups are still expected to maintain social distancing and good hygiene.
The closure of toilets and other facilities will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Necessary site assessments will take place to consider the management of health and safety risk to visitors and staff, and available resourcing to maintain facilities. Access to sanitation products and running water cannot be guaranteed. We recommend bringing hand soap, hand wipes and toilet paper with you to maintain good hygiene as advised by the NSW Government.
