Playground areas and outdoor gym equipment

05 Jul 2020

We have been working hard this week to get play areas open for our residents from this weekend.  Our teams have been busy cutting the grass and inspecting all of the equipment to make sure it is safe for you to use. Play areas will be opened up from tomorrow onwards. However, Hampson Park and Peartree Park need further repairs and will open as soon it’s completed. 

Guidance will be displayed on the measures that should be followed to keep everyone safe, including:

  • If anyone in your household is displaying Covid-19 symptoms, please stay home.
  • To prevent overcrowding only one adult to accompany a child.
  • Only enter the site if equipment is empty and available for use.  If equipment is being used by other people then please wait outside the play area or visit another time.
  • Bring hand sanitiser or wipes so that you can clean hands before and after visiting the site.
  • Maintain 2m social distancing between different family groups at all times.
  • No food or drink is allowed within the play areas.
  • Leave litter in the bins, or take it home.

The advice is provided to help protect people of all ages using the play areas.  We want to provide the play areas for everyone to enjoy, but if the safety tips are not followed we may have to close sites again.

Outdoor gyms will start to be opened up from next week so look out for social media updates and advice posters.
