Severe weather event - Use caution - July 2022

Published on 3 Jul 2022

A severe weather event occurring across Greater Sydney is currently impacting conditions in our Parklands.

Centennial Parklands may be subject to increased rainfall and high winds that could cause flooding, fallen trees and hazardous conditions for visitors. These conditions are on top of the recent significant rainfall across Sydney that has impacted the regular maintenance of our lawns, garden beds and bushland areas. All sporting fields across Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park are completely closed. Check our sports field status page for the latest updates.

The safety of our park users is paramount. Please use caution during your visit to our Parklands at this time and check this page regularly for updates on closures.

If you are in our Parklands please be aware of your surroundings and do not go near or enter flooded water bodies and cross flooded roadways. As always, our rangers are here to help so please follow their directions and take note of emergency signage. If you need assistance, please contact our dedicated ranger on 0412 718 611. Remember, if it is an emergency call 000 before calling the rangers.
