Due to the special nature of our regional parks and the unique habitats they protect, bouncy castles are not permitted for private bookings. They will however be considered on a case by case basis for community event applications.
Parks and reserves this applies to includes the Groynes, Styx Mill Conservation Reserve, Spencer Park, Bottle Lake, Halswell Quarry, Ferrymead Park and Travis Wetland.
Approval will be required if you are booking a local park and are considering having a bouncy castle, Ezi-up gazebo, or anything that pierces the ground. Contact us to arrange approval. Please be aware that this takes time so your booking won't be finalised in the first call.
