From this weekend, all play areas will be open apart from Kingfisher play area in Wixams.
Bedford Borough Council has been working to get its 120 play areas ready for reopening, in line with Government guidance to keep the public safe.
This work has included the removal of some equipment to help maintain social distancing and getting signs ready to publicise the rules that people must follow.

The council is asking you observe the following guidelines:
Bring hand sanitiser and use it before and after entering the play area
Bring wipes and wipe down any equipment your children wish to use, before and after use
Supervise children at all times, with a maximum of 1 parent/carer per child
Only allow one child on each piece of equipment at a time
Do not allow your child to touch their face while in the play area
Do not eat or drink anything within the play area
Take away any litter or rubbish that you have
Parents/carers are also being asked to limit their family’s visit to a play area to an hour, to allow other people to enjoy it. If the play area if busy, people are asked to come back another time.
These rules also apply to the outdoor gym equipment.
The Kingfisher play area in Wixams will remain closed as a large piece of play equipment is in need of repair.
