Rushcliffe Borough Council has safely reopened some car parks at open spaces, tennis courts and skate parks in the Borough. Risk assessments have been completed with its teams and third parties to ensure all can be accessed in line with government advice.
All visitors to the sites are asked to ensure social distancing of two metres is maintained at all times.
Play parks remain closed at all sites but the following facilities are now open:
- The car park at Rushcliffe Country Park where parking is free and its refreshment kiosk and its picnic benches but with increased spacing between benches.
- Tennis courts at Bridgford Park and West Park in West Bridgford.
- Skate parks at both Rushcliffe Country Park and Lady Bay Skate Park in line with Skateboard GB’s and Skateboard England’s updated advice which can be viewed at rushcliffe.gov.uk/coronavirus.
Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason said: “We’re pleased these facilities can re-open but it’s crucial everyone plays their part in using them safely and ensuring they continue to follow social distancing.
“We know our open spaces and recreation facilities are popular and so important to give people opportunity to take part in activities that assist good physical and mental health.
“We’ll continue to review the sites to ensure they can be used safely. Please visit www.rushcliffe.gov.uk for the latest advice on our facilities and how you can access them in line with government guidelines.”
