COVID-19 (Updated 09.04.20)

First published 24th Mar, 2020

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.

Please use the following guidance in order to stay safe:

  • stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily
  • you should only go outside alone or with members of your own household
  • keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • gatherings of more than two in parks or other public spaces have been banned and the police will enforce this
  • if you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air
  • take hygiene precautions when you are outside, and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors
  • if walking your dog in areas used by other people, you should walk your dog on a lead to ensure you can safely keep 2 metres away from others. You can find further guidance for pet owners here
