Putting up bouncy castles or gazebos in parks requires special permission and there are some parks where they are not allowed.
Due to the special nature of our regional parks and the unique habitats they protect, bouncy castles or mechanical devices are not permitted for private bookings. They will, however, be considered on a case by case basis for community event applications.
This applies to all our Garden and Heritage parks, the Groynes, Styx Mill Conservation Reserve, Lake Rua at Roto Kohatu, 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.
