The council says the decision to shut will also help promote social distancing.

Parks will remain open but the council is urging residents to help by respecting social distancing requirements, and minimising the use of equipment that is touched.

Toilets, cafes and children’s play areas will be closed. And outdoor gyms areas will be out of bounds.
