Use of our parks – latest guidance July 2020
It is great to see people continuing to use our park in this difficult time and now we can use this wonderful space to meet up with others outside our household but I want to draw your attention to the latest government guidance.
You should only meet people you do not live with in 3 types of groups:
- you can continue to meet in any outdoor space in a group of up to 6 people from different households
- single adult households – in other words adults who live alone or with dependent children only – can continue to form an exclusive ‘support bubble’ with one other household
- you can also meet in a group of 2 households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household), in any location ‒ public or private, indoors or outdoors. This does not need to be the same household each time.
- but you should maintain social distancing at all times with people who are not in your household or support bubble
Please find more comprehensive guidance below
You will see that the playgrounds and fitness equipment areas are open again but please be mindful of how you use the equipment, avoiding them if the area is already really busy. Always cleanse and wash your hands frequently to help keep yourselves and others safe.
Our toilets are open at weekends and on Thursdays when the park ranger is onsite ensuring they are kept clean for those that need them.
I would like to add a strong plea that people take home rubbish from the park if they can to dispose of or recycle. Lewisham parks have been suffering from mountains of litter with increased use of the parks. Glendale, our parks management team, are doing their best but there are such increased loads it is hard to keep everything clear.
Our cafe is open for take away and Glen sets up a couple of tables on the grass each so that small groups can sit in comfort at a good distance.
