Parks, play areas and open spaces
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Public Notice – following the Government announcement of a new national lockdown, the Animal Education Centre at East Park will close from Tuesday 5 January 2021. Outdoor Gyms will be closed during the lockdown period and public use is prohibited.
Parks, playgrounds and play areas will remain open throughout the lockdown period. Public toilets in our parks will also remain open between the hours of 10am and 3pm.
The latest Government guidance during the lockdown period allows for people to exercise outdoors once a day in your local area. Visits for recreation or leisure (e.g. a picnic or social meeting are not permitted by law). You can exercise in a public outdoor place by yourself, with the people you live with, with your support bubble, in a childcare bubble when providing childcare or when on your own with one person from another household.
In the interest of public safety and social distancing vehicular access to the following parks and playing fields remains closed until further notice:
- East Park (please note car parking and access to East Park is now available via the Woodford Leisure Centre car park)
- Pickering Park
We thank you for understanding our current guidance, and encourage users to enjoy our parks and other green spaces in a safe and responsible manner. Please act upon the latest guidance on social distancing and good hygiene as recommended by Public Health England.
