COVID-19: Cardiff closes play areas in its parks to the public
Play areas in Cardiff Council's parks are to close with immediate effect.

The risk of transmission from child to child on play equipment is thought to represent too great a risk to the public as we seek to slow the transmission of COVID-19.

Cardiff's parks will remain open at this time. We understand the role they can play in aiding well being through the outbreak.

However, we are urging everyone who visits our parks to practice social distancing. This is vital if we are to slow or halt the person-to-person transmission of COVID-19.

If social distancing rules are not followed in our parks then we may have to review this position and they could then be closed to the public.

We therefore strongly urge people to avoid any large gatherings, and observe social distancing, so that parks can remain open.
