Coronavirus, Parks and Play Areas

On Wednesday 8 July we will begin opening play areas with a view that they will all be open by Saturday 11 July.

When using our play areas we need you to stay safe, please take note of the following:

  • The maximum number of children allowed within each play area - you will find this information below and it can also be found on the sign at the play area
  • If the maximum number of children has been reached please do not enter and wait outside of the play area
  • When entering the play area please give way to adults and children exiting and keep your distance
  • Only 1 child should use each piece of equipment at any one time unless you are all from the same household
  • Each child should be accompanied by no more than 1 adult
  • Please observe social distancing in line with government guidance for waiting queues and when using the play area
  • The Council is not providing hand sanitiser in our play areas, we advise you wash/sanitise your hands before and after using the equipment. You may also wish to bring your own wipes.
  • Children should be supervised carefully to maintain good hygiene and should not use play areas if they have any signs or symptoms of coronavirus

You will see that some of our equipment has been adapted or taped off to help maintain social distancing.
We will continue to inspect our play areas regularly to keep them safe from hazards such as trips and faulty equipment but enhanced cleansing regularly is not practically possible and to help us keep the play areas safe we ask that adhere to the guidance above.

Enjoy your play!
