Play areas begin to reopen across Oldham

Play areas throughout Oldham have begun to reopen for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown was imposed.

The council say it has started a phased reopening of its 110 play areas in parks across the borough. 

From Saturday (11 July), the facilities in Alexandra Park, Stoneleigh Park, Werneth Park, Higher Park, Chadderton Hall Park, High Crompton Park, St Chad's and Oldham town centre reopened. 

The authority say more will follow very soon. 

People who visit the parks are reminded to wash their hands regularly, don't go if they are showing symptoms of coronavirus, maintain social distancing, and save litter for the bin at home. 

Park car parks, basketball courts, tennis courts, multi-games areas, bowling greens and skate parks are open in parks - but some facilities including toilets and cafes remain closed.
