Parks & Open Spaces

Parks & Open Spaces

COVID - 19 UPDATE 2020. Our Parks & Open Spaces remain open to the public but our play areas, multi -use games areas, Skate Parks and Bowling greens are closed until further notice.

In line with the most recent Government advice, we are currently assessing all the play areas in the Borough following the three month lockdown period when they have remained closed.

We need to make sure that they are safe for use and the areas clean and tidy. We will be opening the play areas on a phased approach with the largest, high profile ones first with sites distributed across all areas of  the Borough.

We are looking to start opening the play areas from Monday 13th July and over a two week period, all the areas will be back again open for use. As the play areas open signs will be erected outlining both the Council's and residents' role in keeping the areas safe.

Please follow Government guidelines on social distancing and use our parks only as part of your daily exercise allowance.

Please use the following guidance in order to stay safe:

  • keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • take hygiene precautions when you are outside, and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors
  • meet up in groups of no more than 6 people 
  • if walking your dog in areas used by other people, you should walk your dog on a lead to ensure you can safely keep 2 metres away from others.
