Guidance on using parks and green spaces safely

Our parks and green spaces are crucial for exercise and mental wellbeing, but to ensure they stay open for everyone to use, you must follow the Government's rules to stop the spread of COVID-19.

When using Merton's parks or green spaces, it is vital that you take these steps:

  • Do not visit a park if you have any symptoms – fever, coughs, shortness of breath. See NHS guidelines if this applies to you.
  • Please keep your dog under control at all times and on a lead if necessary.
