Play areas and open spaces

Advice about exercising and exploring the outdoors in our borough as the lockdown restrictions ease.

Play Areas

Our 38 play areas reopened on Saturday 4 July for children to enjoy.

Before your visit, please make sure you read our Icon for pdf play area guidance [196.47KB] in full to keep you, your family and others as safe as possible.

This advice is based on government guidance for managing playgrounds and outdoor gyms.

Outdoor spaces

Staying active can be mood boosting and our beautiful parks and outdoor spaces remain open for you to enjoy.

Trips to explore the great outdoors are allowed, but we still need to be careful when visiting our local beauty spots. Stanborough Park gets very busy on warm, summer days and if you don't think you can move around safely, it is best to go back home or find somewhere you can.
