Play Parks

Access to St Mary’s play parks

Following a recent specialist inspection of our play parks, please be aware:

  • The Garrison play park is now open as of 12/01/2021. Thank You for your support, patience and understanding whilst repairs were being made. Please follow all social distancing rules when in use. 

  • The Porthcressa play park remains open, but the swing has been removed and the climbing frame is unsafe and must not be used until further notice.

Parents are responsible for the hygiene of their children when using these public facilities during the coronavirus situation. All parents are encouraged to bring cleansing wipes to clean their hands and those of their children before and after using the play facilities, as these facilities are not being cleaned on a regular basis. It is very important that parents/carers judge the risk of COVID-19 to themselves and their family before entering the play parks.


Please Play Safe and follow these guidelines…

  • Play two metres away from others not in your household/bubble 

  • Leave no germs, wash your hands before and after use

  • Always clean equipment before use

  • Young children to be supervised carefully to maintain hygiene

  • Suggested maximum time here is 30 minutes

  • And one household/bubble for each item of play equipment

  • Family members, only one with each child please

  • End your visit if the play area is busy, or becomes busy, come back another time
