Our parks and green spaces have remained open during the pandemic and we know how much you value this.
Reduced numbers of staff are working on sites and we would appreciate it if you could take any litter home with you.
In our cafes and visitor centres you will see new screens and queuing systems and we ask that you please remember to stay 2 meters away from staff and other members of the public. Masks should also be worn inside the cafes.
Thank you for your support.
There are a number of country parks, nature reserves and play areas in the district - click on the links below to find out more. Visit the Countryside Events page for details of what's on at our parks and nature reserves.
