Coronavirus – parks

Our parks remain open, but outdoor gyms, water fountains, play areas and multi-use games areas are now closed. People using the parks to exercise must stay two metres apart and not gather in groups. We are arranging for prominent signs about social distancing in parks.

Please see each park’s page for updates about the availability of facilities.
