Welcome to Kennington Park


From Thursday 5 November 2020 England went into a Covid-19 lockdown, but our parks and green spaces will stay open, they are crucial for exercise and mental wellbeing. To stop the spread of COVID-19, a new "rule of two" applies to parks and open spaces.

Social distancing guidance is two metres or 6 foot, where it is not possible to stay 2m apart, please try to remain at least 1m apart with extra precautions such as wearing a face covering.

For the new "rule of 2" you can exercise or meet in a public, outdoor space with people you live with, your support bubble,or as part of a childcare bubble, or with one other person [children under 5 and disabled people dependent on round the clock care are not counted on the 2 person limit].  This time, unlimited exercise is allowed.

  • The children's playground is OPEN, but please ensure good hygiene, cleansing hands regularly and avoid face touching.

  • Outdoor gym equipment will NOT BE OPEN and will be fenced off. Ref: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 state part 2, point 24 states that Councils/ Clubs must close: ‘Outdoor sports centres or amenities, including water sports, stables, shooting and archery venues, golf courses, driving ranges, outdoor gyms, outdoor swimming pools, water parks and aquaparks.’

  • The table tennis tables will NOT BE OPEN and will be fenced off

  • The hoops on the basketball hardstanding have been removed

  • The park's tennis courts and Astroturf will NOT BE OPEN

  • The adult and children's toilets will be OPEN.

  • Park benches will not be taped off this time and may be sat on, but with social distancing.

  • School sport is exempted, but can only take place within the school setting during the lockdown.

  • To stay safe, please remember that social distancing is essential

  • Please help to keep the park tidy, no BBQs and dont hang exercise bands off tree branches.
