Parks & Open Spaces

Parks & Open Spaces COVID - 19 UPDATE 2021. Our Parks & Open Spaces remain open to the public. The play areas are open but with restrictions as to how they are to be used. The tennis courts , outdoor gyms , skate parks and multi-use games areas are closed.

The latest Government Guidance on accessing green spaces safely is detailed below.

Members of the public should minimise the time spent outside their home, but can leave their home to exercise. This should be limited to once per day, and they should not travel outside their local area.

You can exercise in a public outdoor place:

• by yourself
• with the people you live with
• with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
• in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
• or, when on your own, with one person from another household
