Please note that additional changes with regards to public activity are being made regularly by the Australian Government and Queensland Health, so this page will continue to be updated over the coming weeks. 

All of these changes have been made in the interests of public safety and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. The health and well-being of visitors is a priority, and Roma Street Parkland will continue to support any initiatives that have been developed to protect members of the public. 
In addition to the above, Roma Street Parkland is proactively implementing daily touch-point cleaning of all toilet blocks and parent’s rooms (specially-cleaned touch-points include hand railings, door handles, taps, dispensers, switches, signage and cistern buttons) plus intensifying night-cleaning of all toilets.
When you visit Roma Street Parkland, please make sure that you observe the guidelines set out by Queensland Health. These are also listed on their website and include only leaving the house for essential reasons, keeping at least 1.5 metres from others while you are in the park, no gatherings of more than two people from outside the same household, not visiting the Parkland if you are unwell, observing the 14 day self-isolation policy if you have recently returned from overseas, and washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds at a time, as needed.
