Update on Play Areas

Play area closure due to COIVID-19

We are working to reopen our play areas as soon as possible so children and adults can enjoy the health benefits of exercising and playing outdoors.

Once we receive more detail and guidance from the government about the measures required to open these facilities safely, with ongoing social distancing to save lives as we emerge from Covid-19, we will do everything we can to open them as soon as possible after Saturday 4 July.

There is a lot of work to do to make sure our sites are safe for people to use and meet national safety requirements. We need to reinstall equipment which was removed during lockdown, check for any damage and carry out rigorous safety inspections at all sites.

We aim to open all our sites as quickly as we can. However, due to the work we need to do to make sure they are safe, it won’t be possible to open them all on Saturday 4 July. For your own safety, do not use play areas unless it’s clear that the site has been fully opened.
