Recreational Services began working with Queenstown Lakes District Council on 1st April 2018, and we've been blown away by the breathtaking natural beauty of the area and the stunning parks and green spaces it has to offer. 

Queensland Lakes District Council estimates that at capacity, the city accommodates 34 visitors for every one of its 15,450 permanent residents. This puts a lot of pressure on the Council’s public areas, and our team works hard to ensure the maintenance works are up to date and the sites kept looking their best.
