It takes lots of people from a whole range of groups and organisations to make our parks, open spaces and play areas bustling with fun activities and places everyone can enjoy.
The developing coronavirus situation means that currently:
• play areas must not be used
• activities – ranging from park run, pétanque and model-boating, even the action days organised by dedicated and committed teams of volunteers – cannot take place.
• toilets are closed, but from Monday 6 July only the main toilets will re-open at Earlham, Eaton and Waterloo parks.
Your local park or open space, however, can be a good place to enjoy fresh air.
It’s important to make sure you keep yourself, your family and others safe by:
• keeping a good distance (at least two metres/6 feet) from anyone who does not live in your home with you
• only gathering in groups of up to 6 people in our parks and open spaces – as well as in gardens and in private outdoor spaces – providing those from different households remain two metres apart
• not using the play and sports equipment
• washing your hands when you’re back indoors (and use of hand sanitiser when you’re out and about is recommended where hand-washing is not possible).
Thank you for using these spaces safely and responsibly.
