Using our parks and open spaces during national lockdown
We are currently in a period of national lockdown and this means, for the most part, we must stay at home.
Current rules do allow us to leave home for exercise, which can play a significant role in our physical and mental wellbeing, and you may want to use your local park or open space for this reason.
It’s important to be aware what the national rules and guidelines are and follow these so we can all protect ourselves, each other and the NHS, as well as what they mean for using local parks and open spaces.
Our parks, playgrounds, skate and BMX facilities are open.
You can exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person.
This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
maintain a good distance from anyone who does not live in your home with you
wash your hands when you’re back indoors and using hand sanitiser when you’re out and about is recommended
dispose of litter responsibly.
The following facilities are closed or cannot be used currently:
multi-use games areas/basketball courts
outdoor gym equipment
pitch and kick (footgolf and pitch and putt)
But we hope to be able to welcome you back to these soon, when it’s safe to do so.
