Coronavirus: council service information and advice
Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus
We have lots of great parks and open spaces across the city - which are open for people to use for exercise with their household.
The children's play facilities and outdoor gym equipment in these areas are currently closed.
Our parks will continue to be maintained so that people can continue to enjoy them in line with latest government advice.
Following changes to Government guidance, the following sports facilities are now open:
You are only permitted to take part in activities alone, with members of your household, or with one other person from outside your household, while practising social distancing. Signs explaining the rules will be put up in these areas.
Under the updated guidelines play parks, play equipment and outdoor gyms must not be used. Adventure playgrounds will remain closed.
We will continue to update this list over the coming days.
