Parking information

When picking up and dropping off your children each day for the Carnaby Kids Sports Program you can use the Pick up/Drop off bay at the end of Curtin Stadium in Carpark A3 (for up to 10 minutes). This allows you to park your car, walk your child into the facility safely and sign them into or out of the program. After this is completed you will then need to move your vehicle from the pick up/drop off bay. If you wish to stay and watch your child for a duration of time you will need to pay for parking in A3 or an alternative carpark using the CellOPark app.
