Play Areas Opening In Broxtowe

Play Areas Opening In Broxtowe

09/07/20 - Play areas in Broxtowe will begin opening next week after closing in order to keep residents safe during the pandemic.

Play areas across the Borough will start opening from Monday 13th July as part of a phased opening over a two week period. All play areas, as long as they meet the necessary safety criteria, will be open by 24th July.

Since Government guidance changed recently to allow play areas to re-open, the Council has been working to ensure they are safe and clean and tidy for use.

Councillor Helen Skinner, Chair of the Environment and Climate Change Committee said: “We know some residents have been disappointed that the play areas haven’t already opened but we want to make sure that they have been thoroughly inspected and the areas tidied up  having been unused for so long.Councillor Helen Skinner

Play areas will begin opening from 13th July, with some of the larger and  most popular sites from all areas across the Borough first. All play areas will be open within two weeks of this date, provided there are no issues identified.  

All of the play areas will have signage installed explaining how many children are allowed on the play area at once to comply with social distancing and what guidelines we need residents to follow to keep everyone safe so that they can remain open.”

Residents using the play areas must:

  • Respect others at all times
  • Maintain social distance
  • If other children are waiting, limit time in the area
  • Regularly clean hands with sanitiser or wipes
  • Avoid touching face, eyes, nose or mouth
  • Catch coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve
  • Take used wipes and tissues home
  • Do not eat or drink in the area
  • Try to use the area at quieter times
  • Clean hands when they get home
