Wirral Council public parks remain open for people to use for exercise. Visitor centres, enclosed sports pitches, skate parks and outdoor gyms (outdoor exercise equipment) remain closed. It is vital that visits to any of our parks follow the latest government rules, particularly those on social distancing.
Children’s playgrounds began to reopen from Saturday 18 July. All council-owned playgrounds are now open except the following playgrounds:
These playgrounds will remain closed after safety checks revealed the need for urgent repairs - some caused by vandalism.
The walkway around West Kirby Marine Lake reopened to the public on 4 July. Social distancing remains crucial and signage has been installed along the walkway and at each entrance as a reminder to walkers. If the walkway is busy, consider visiting at a quieter time or come back another day. It’s harder, if not impossible, to social distance if the walkway is crowded.
All four Wirral Council municipal golf courses have now reopened.
