Here is what Brisbane City Council have to say:

Council’s fenced off-leash dog parks have now reopened, except for those that are closed due to maintenance. Council encourages dog owners to practise safe social distancing and hygiene while using dog off-leash areas.

Council’s barbecues, playgrounds, outdoor gyms, BMX tracks, skate parks, basketball and tennis courts and Southbank aquatic facilities will start reopening in stages from midnight Friday 15 May in the next step towards the city’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. 

Check our Coronavirus: Council updates and impacts page for latest updates, cancelled events and venue closures. Protect yourself and others by practicing social distancing in our parks.
