Practical tips for visiting parks
- Observe physical distancing of 1.5 metres at all times
- Check that the park or site is open before travelling by visiting the PWS alerts page
- Bring your own hand sanitiser
- Be prepared for cold weather and take safety precautions in areas where there is snow.
- If a car park is full, no more people can visit that site. Do not join vehicle queues or park illegally, instead go to an alternative destination
- Stay safe – do not jump barriers or railings to access areas that are prohibited
- If you are using BBQ facilities make sure you clean them before and after each use.
