We are not closing parks at this stage as we are mindful of the health and well-being benefits of being outside. However, you must rigidly observe the Government and NHS advice on social distancing such as keeping 2 metres away from other people. Play areas, tennis courts and outdoor gyms should not be used at this time. People who need to stay at home and self-isolate must do so. If the guidance is not followed this position on parks and open spaces will be reviewed.
