Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
All play areas and outdoor gyms are now open in Haringey parks.
They had been closed due to coronavirus, but following a programme of cleaning, new signage, risk assessments and the removal of miles of temporary fencing that had been erected, they are now available to use again.
Please continue to use all of our facilities responsibly to help prevent a second wave of coronavirus.
- Please do not use if you feel ill or are self-isolating
- Please do sanitise your hands regularly whilst using the equipment and remember to wash your hands as soon as you are able to do so after use
- Stay a safe distance from others
- Do not eat or drink within the facilities
- If the facility is busy, wait patiently until you can use it safely, or come back when less busy

The Prime Minister made a new statement today announcing that some “higher risk settings” that were due to open tomorrow will no longer do so.
He said that until 15 August at the earliest:
- Casinos, bowling alleys, skating rinks and remaining close contact services must remain closed;
- Indoor performances will not resume;
- Pilots of larger crowds in sports venues and conference centres will not take place; and
- Wedding receptions of up to 30 people will not be permitted, but ceremonies can continue to take place, in line with COVID-Secure guidelines.
In addition, the government will extend the requirement to wear a face covering to other indoor settings such as museums, galleries, cinemas and places of worship. This will become enforceable in law from 8 August.
The national pause on shielding will continue as planned from tomorrow. At this stage, the government is not changing the rules on social contact nationally.
As we start to see some areas of the north of England tightening COVID-19 measures again, it is crucial that everyone continues to follow government guidance and be respectful of others.
Everyone, including our young people, have played a vital role in helping to contain the spread of the virus, and the government has set out specific guidance for young people on social distancing and meeting people.
There is also information on returning to school, college or university and protecting different groups of people.
We would urge you not to meet in large groups, even in this nice weather.
