Playgrounds and outdoor gyms
In line with government guidelines, playgrounds and outdoor gyms in parks will reopen on Monday 6 July.
We understand that children have been patiently waiting for our playgrounds to reopen but please observe social distancing guidelines, take your litter home and play safe. Please don’t eat food in these areas, clean equipment before and after use, be respectful to other users and use the bins provided or take your rubbish home with you. Litter can spread the virus.
