Dear Parents and Carers and Awesome Children,
We thank you all for your support and understanding during these challenging times.
We are not able to offer our normal play service due to the Covid-19 pandemic but recognise and advocate the importance of play on children and young people’s well being during this Lockdown period.
Following the Government’s Outdoor Playground Guidance we have been able to open the playgrounds for outdoor play sessions for Islington children and young people and will be continuing this during the Easter Holiday period.
Week 1: Tuesday 6th Apr -Friday 9th Apr
Week 2: Monday 12th Apr -Friday 16th Apr
You can see the opening times of playgrounds by visiting their page though the playground tab above.
Implementing the Covid-19 safety measures recommended by the Government means we have to operate in a very different way.
You can read more about the specific protective measures that will be in place and access our general Covid-19 risk assessment below.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the individual playground managers by phone or email. These details can be found on the individual playground page, navigated through the menu bar above.
Government advice on outdoor playgrounds can be found here,
We hope you will continue to be understanding and work with us during this pandemic to ensure we can offer a safe play environment for as many children and young people as possible. Support us by following the measures we put in place and respecting our staff, who are following the government guidance to keep everyone safe.
We continue to hope that it will not be too long before we can get back to normal and all Islington children can play freely with no restrictions on the adventure playgrounds together as a whole community – what a celebration that will be!
We truly appreciate all your support, love and patience in these hard and uncertain times that we are all facing.
Most importantly – stay safe, and let’s remember: Hands, Face , Space to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus and protecting our NHS.
Monitoring and minimising contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, or who have been advised by NHS Test & Trace to self-isolate do not attend the adventure playground.
We’re making sure our playgrounds in Islington live up to the name our young adventurers gave us. Well, we don’t want them to rename us Boring, do we?
