Despite government rules changing in terms of parks reopening,people are advised to walk to the parks instead of drive so car parks don't get crowded.

Cllr John Harrison, executive member for culture, delivery and public protection said: “We send our sincere thanks to all those people who continue to walk or cycle to their nearest green space, where it is possible to do so.

"Staying local remains the best way to support the NHS and the coronavirus effort. If driving to parks, people should only leave cars parked in a marked bay and shouldn’t queue in their car or circulate waiting for a space if the car park is full. The responsible action is to return home and try again at another time if the location is full."

Most car parks in the borough have reopened apart from Swinley Forest and The Look Out remain closed until further notice.
