Winter service

Please take extra care if you choose to enter our parks and open spaces during periods of inclement weather this winter, as hard surface areas may be 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.

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

Further information is available in the parks winter service approach document (pdf, 48kb).
