Risdon Brook Dam

Risdon Brook Park

Temporary park closure notice: Tuesday 3 September and Wednesday 4 September

TasWater will be performing some weather dependant maintenance to improve water quality within the reservoir.
This work will be completed over two business days. Access to the park will not be affected by this work over a weekend.
As the work is weather dependant, the date may change at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors familiar with the site will notice that there is more shoreline exposed than usual, this is due to recent lowering of water levels to provide access for water vegetation removal. 500 tonnes of weeds have been removed from the reservoir, which will improve the quality of the water that is stored in the reservoir. TasWater is now refilling the reservoir, with water expected to be returned to a more familiar level by late November.

Risdon Brook Park is the location of one of TasWater's largest drinking water reservoirs in the south of the state. Set among dense bushland, Risdon Brook Park is a popular recreational area and offers a walking track, barbecue facilities and disabled fishing bays, children's playground and toilets.

During inclement weather, TasWater reserves the right to close the park without prior advice or notice for safety reasons.  We will place any closure advice on this page, so if you have booked a hut and you have doubts about the weather, please check here prior to going out to the park to avoid disappointment.

NOTE: with the weather warming up, we would like to remind the public to be cautious of snakes as they become more active.
