MESSAGE FOR PARK USER GROUPS
 Message from Parks for London to Heads of Parks Services and Supporters: 
 
Dear Heads of Parks Services and Supporters
 
You have all been doing a great job to keep our parks open. Thank you. I’ve seen footage of worse problems in German, French & Japanese parks. If you have not already closed your park carparks then we strongly advise that you do this to discourage people travelling further than their local parks.
 
We are working with non-local authority heads of park services, the GLA & London Councils to update current messaging both on our website and the Mayor of London website ahead of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend; we will use Twitter to promote the messaging.
 
The proposed guidance for the duration of the lockdown are given below, in line with government advice including that people can leave their homes for exercise once a day:Stay local and use parks and green spaces close to your homeOnly go outside alone or with members of your own householdKeep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all timesKeep moving and spread out when you are in parks or green spacesGatherings of more than two people in parks or other public spaces have been banned, this will be enforced by the policeMake use of your garden if you have one to help reduce visits to parks and green spacesKeep your dog on a lead in public spaces to ensure you can safely keep 2 metres away from othersTake litter and dog mess home with youFollow hygiene advice when you are outside and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoorsPlease bear in mind that the Government’s scheduled guidance is due for an update on Monday 13th April, so we will update you again next week.

Many thanks for your enduring work.
Kind regards
