Parks & Open Spaces

Parks & Open Spaces

COVID - 19 UPDATE July 19 2021. All our Parks and Open Spaces are open to the public and we would ask that the following rules/guidelines are still followed.
  1. Stay at home if you have COVID-19 symptoms

Self-isolate immediately if you develop COVID-19 symptoms and get a PCR test. You should self-isolate at home while you book the test and wait for the results.

  1. Limit close contact

Although social distancing is no longer required, you may choose to limit the close contact you have with people you do not usually live with when visiting the parks and open spaces, particularly if you are not fully vaccinated. This is a personal choice which can help reduce your risk of catching or spreading COVID-19.

  1. Wash your hands

Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.

You should wash your hands:

  • after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose
  • before you eat or handle food
  • after coming into contact with surfaces touched by many others, such as handles, handrails and light switches
  • after coming into contact with shared areas such as sports pavilions
  • as soon as you return home

.4. Face coverings

The government expects and recommends face coverings to be worn in crowded and enclosed areas, this would include sports pavilions.

We would ask that you continue to respect other visitors to the sites. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or are self-isolating due to Coronavirus (COVID -19) do not visit the parks and open spaces. Please take your litter home with you if bins are already full.

Play Areas

All  play areas remain open to the public but are likely to be very busy. We therefore ask that you:

  • Respect others at all times
  • If other children are waiting, limit time in the area
  • Take used wipes and tissues home
  • Try to use the area at quieter times
