COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely.

Parks and open spaces

Parks 1

COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Our parks, including Coombe Abbey Park and War Memorial Park are still open. They offer the chance for a walk, which is good for health and mental wellbeing. You can help us keep them open by keeping a 2 metre distance between yourself and others when you visit. Now is not the time for picnics, BBQs and mass gatherings.

Toilets, car parks and all play areas across the city are closed. Areas for older children and gym equipment are harder to cordon off – but like play areas they are also closed.
