Yarra Park closure - AFL Round 15

Jul 05, 2012

Due to its wet condition, Yarra Park will not be used for public vehicle parking at the Collingwood-Carlton, Melbourne-Richmond and and Hawthorn-Greater Western Sydney AFL matches at the MCG this weekend.

However, the following groups will be permitted to access Gate 3 or 7 upon presentation of a valid car park pass or staff identification:

• Disabled patrons
• MCC Events Staff
• Victoria Police
• St John Ambulance
• Media with AFL accreditation
• Corporate guests with car parking passes
• Competing clubs with car parking passes.

The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC), manager of Yarra Park, has assessed the park's condition and determined that the majority of the park would risk damage if used for vehicles this weekend.

The MCC encourages patrons to use public transport where possible.

Anyone driving to the MCG should seek an alternative parking area in Melbourne's CBD and surrounding inner suburbs.
