Car parks at Gedling Borough parks to reopen Thursday 14th May 2020

Alert message sent 13/05/2020 17:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire


Car parks at Gedling Borough Council’s parks will reopen from Thursday 14th May 2020 in response to updated Government guidance on exercising during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Car parks at Gedling Country Park, Arnot Hill Park and all other Gedling Borough Council owned parks will open following a change in the government’s guidance on the amount of exercise people can take and the partial relaxation of rules around driving to places to exercise.

Play areas at the parks will remain closed. The cafés at Gedling Country Park and Arnot Hill Park and public toilets at parks are set to open in coming days, once further hygiene arrangements have been put in place. Visitors to the parks and open spaces must adhere to social distancing measures. The car parks have been closed since the end of March following the introduction of the lockdown measures.

Gedling Borough Council Deputy Leader, Councillor Michael Payne said:

“We are opening up car parks at our parks and open spaces to allow residents who cannot travel by foot to visit them, exercise and enjoy some fresh air. All visitors to the parks must adhere to social distancing measures, which have not changed. We are very conscious of the importance of exercise but we do not want to see the reproduction rate of this terrible virus go up, so please stay two metres apart from each other and take extra care when visiting the parks.”

The parks affected are:

Arnot Hill Park, Breckhill Road, Burton Road, Carlton Hill Recreation ground, Church Lane Recreation ground, Colwick Rectory, Conway Road Recreation ground, Killisick Recreation ground, Lambley Lane recreation ground, Oakdale Road recreation ground, Thackery’s Lane Recreation ground, Gedling Country Park, Bestwood Country Park.
