Parks update - COVID-19

Parks and services are open as normal

Winter service

Please take extra care in our parks and open spaces during periods of inclement weather this winter, as hard surfaces may be slippery.

We will be salting high-risk locations where ice or snow are visible during the day. However, the vast majority of hard surfaces within parks will remain untreated. Consider the risks of slipping over before entering a park and consider taking a safer alternative route.

Cycling is especially dangerous in icy weather and we strongly advise against riding a bike in icy conditions. Review your travel plans before setting off on your journey and always consider alternative means of transport.

Booster vaccines if you're aged 18 or over

Find a COVID-19 booster vaccine walk-in clinic (if it's been three months since your second dose)
