Facilities

​Biodiversity parks

Our biodiversity parks provide a protected space to observe our beautiful biodiversity and enjoy activities such as birdwatching, hiking and cycling.

​​​

Please note

The current drought and water restrictions may affect the use of some facilities. If one becomes unsuitable for use either before or during the lease period, due to limited or no water supply, the lessee shall have no claim for damages from the City, whether direct or indirect. In this case, the City has the right to close the facility and cancel any bookings. Any payments made will be refunded unless another suitable City owned facility can be provided. 

Users of our facilities must practice responsible water and electricity usage. Those who do not comply will have their leases, as well as the usage of electricity and water on the premises, terminated immediately.​
