Play areas in the Vale

Play, sports and exercise areas closed due to COVID-19

To protect our residents and help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed all play, sports and exercise areas.

Our parks and open spaces are still open so that people can stay fit and active. Please follow government guidance and stay at least two metres apart, and if the parks are busy, you should not use them.

Please do not congregate in large groups.  Stay in your homes as much as you can to avoid social contact wherever possible.

Thank you for your support in helping prevent the spread of the virus.
