Latest coronavirus updates

Last updated: Friday 13 November at 8:30am

The Park remains open to visitors, with the parklands and canal paths still accessible to all, seven days a week.

London's parks are important at this time to give people the space they need to exercise. The acres of open space are ideal for keeping active in the fresh air, whilst enjoying nature and the iconic surroundings.  

You may meet one other person outside of your household, however visitors must follow social distancing guidelines to keep everyone safe.

More information about the facilities and venues on the Park can be found below:

  • Venues and attractions across the Park, including the Information Point, are closed until at least Wednesday 2 December. All ticket holders will be contacted to arrange rebooking for a later date.
  • Play areas are open, with only some areas closed off. There is clear signage telling users to take precautions. The Waterworks Fountains in the south of the Park are switched off.

Here are some ways that you can help us to keep the Park as safe as possible:

  • Maintain social distancing at all times.
  • Do not gather in groups of more than two people.
  • Take any litter home with you – this reduces the need for frequent refuse collection and keeps our Park clean and tidy.
  • Do not bring a barbecue.
  • Keep your dog on a lead.
  • Car parking is very limited around the Park, so we encourage visitors to walk or cycle to the Park.
