During high winds keep out of the parks due to hazards with falling trees and branches. Keep away from water courses during extreme weather conditions such as storm tides, freezing and flooding. Do not cross pooling water on trails if you can’t see the trails surface due to a danger of falling.

Always exercise caution when travelling the areas especially with pets and young children.

We are monitoring Eastern Grey Squirrels. Grey squirrels are an introduced species that may pose a threat to native squirrels and birds.

We are asking park visitors to report sightings to allow us to:

  • map the current distribution
  • determine the animal's movements and dynamics
  • assess the Eastern Grey Squirrel's impacts on native species
  • determine if action is required to protect native species.
