East Suffolk’s park playgrounds re-open on Saturday 4 July 2020.

Please read the following guidance:

  • Encourage everyone in your family to wash/sanitise their hands at frequent intervals and, as a minimum, before and after using the playground. Wash your hands when you get home. 


  • You MUST maintain social distancing from others unless they are from the same household - current advice is to maintain at least two metres where possible. 
    Do not consume food or drink in the play area.


  • If you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms, or have been advised to self-isolate, go home and do not use this equipment.


  • This equipment is checked regularly for damage, wear and tear, but will not be sanitised regularly. You may wish to sanitise the equipment before your child uses it.


  • Encourage children to avoid touching their faces, particularly after using equipment. Cough or sneeze into a tissue or arm when a tissue is not available.


  • Some equipment can only be used by one child at a time while social distancing.  Please ensure your family waits at a safe distance if the equipment is in use or return later to
    use the equipment


  • Try to avoid busy times and, where possible, only one family member per child should attend. 


  • Please take all used wipes, gloves, face coverings etc. away. Use bins where provided.
  • Please be considerate to others and limit the time you spend at the playground when others are queuing to get in.


  • We hope you enjoy using the playground and thank you for helping to keep everyone
    safe by always following these simple instructions.
