This is in line with NWLDC.

After reviewing the Government guidance on the reopening of playgrounds and outdoor gyms, we will not be opening council owned playgrounds from Saturday 4 July.

PLEASE NOTE: This just refers to the playground equipment, the open spaces on our parks have remained open throughout and will continue to be freely accessible but all social distancing guidelines should be adhered to.

The Government has stressed that these areas should only be reopened if we can make sure they will be used safely – at this stage we do not feel we can put adequate measures or resources in place to ensure your safety and the safety of your children.We will constantly review the situation in light of any further government guidance and available resources and will open them if we feel we can do so in a safe manner. Thank you for your understanding.

Everyone visiting parks and open spaces must follow the Government's two metre social distancing guidance. You can also gather in groups of up to six, as long as social distancing measures are strictly followed.

Dogs are not allowed on the parks apart from the footpath through St Christopher's and on the Hugglescote Recreation Ground playing field behind South Street.
