Winter weather

Parks

During icy and snowy weather the parks service will endeavour to open the locked parks by 7.30 am, but please bear with us during difficult weather conditions. Please take extra care if you choose to enter our parks and open spaces at such times as hard surface areas may slippery. To reduce environmental damage hard surfaces in parks are not being salted or gritted this season. Please think about the risks of slipping over before entering the park and consider the option of taking an alternative safer route.

Further information is available in the parks winter service approach document (pdf, 116kb) and also on our winter service page.
