Welcome to Kennington Park
HELP TO KEEP YOUR PARK OPEN
London’s parks and green spaces are crucial for exercise and mental wellbeing. To stop the spread of COVID-19, the Mayor of London asks that you must continue to follow the Government’s rules on social distancing.
The guidance from the 13th May has now been updated and from Monday 1st June you can:
spend time outdoors - for example sitting in the park, sunbathing and enjoying the fresh air;
dogs should continue to be on leads
exercise as often as you wish - following social distancing guidelines;
now meet up to 6 persons outside either in a park or a private garden - they can be from different households - but continue to follow the social distancing guidelines. This number includes children
use outdoor sports facilities (where re-opened) such as a tennis or basketball court, or golf course – with members of your household, or one other person while staying 2 metres apart. Team sports are not permitted.
continue to stay local, but you can drive to a green space. Please walk or cycle where you can
Despite these changes to the rules, it’s still possible for the coronavirus to spread from person to person, so please ensure you keep 2 metres apart from anyone that you do not live with. As with before, you still cannot:
use an outdoor gym, childrens' playground or any other facility that has been closed
gather in a group of more than six (see above for the changes from 1st June).
