Parks and countryside

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advice

All Parks and Countryside sites are currently open. Please follow government advise on social distancing, which can be found at 

Play areas will remain open. Hand sanitiser will not be provided on site so please ensure that you bring your own to use before and after you use the equipment. 

The current advice is that you can visit parks and countryside sites for exercise as long as you remain in your local area. You should not currently travel outside of your local area to visit any of our sites. 

Parks and Countryside Events

Sadly, due to the restrictions in place across the borough and in neighbouring areas, all of our Parks and Countryside events are suspended for the foreseeable future. 

On some of our sites we have created self guided trails that you can complete as you walk around the park. Details of these can be found on the webpages for each site. 

Natural Learning Resources

We have created a number of educational resources helping to address the requirements outlined within the National Curriculum.These resources were originally designed to compliment Ranger led workshops but can also be used as stand alone resources.
