We’re encouraging safe and family-friendly celebrations in our parks and gardens this New Year’s Eve. All Yarra’s parks and gardens will be open to the public, but there will be zero tolerance for anti-social behaviour.

Please respect residents who live near the parks.

Alcohol is not permitted in public spaces in Yarra - including streets and parks - from 9pm on Sunday 30 December 2018 until 9am Tuesday 1 January 2019.

There will be extra bins, toilets, lighting, security and clean-up crews in popular parks in Yarra to ensure a safe and relaxed environment to welcome in the New Year.

Other things to remember when visiting our parks over New Year’s:

  • Amplified music is not permitted
  • Leave glass at home
  • Clean up after yourself (and your dogs) and use the bins provided

Everyone is invited to come along to Yarra Park Life: a free, fun, low-key, child and dog-friendly celebration at the Edinburgh Gardens on Monday 31 December.
