Reserves and open spaces are open with the following guidelines:

  • Stay in your 'bubble'
  • Farm park upper tracks have reopened - gates have been left open where possible to reduce the need to touch hard surfaces
  • Don’t take any risks that might require the assistance of Police or rescue services.

If people do not obey this COVID-19 hygiene guidance during the Level 4 lockdown period, Council may be forced to close the parks.
