These facilities are now open in all parks across the city:

The following facilities listed below are not open, but we are constantly reviewing the position:

  • Outdoor gyms
  • Public toilets in parks
  • Communal facilities on allotments
  • Formal baseball, cricket, football and rugby pitches
  • Citywide crown green bowls
  • Heaton Park boat hire, donkey rides, flat and crown green bowls, farm centre, garden centre and Tree Top Trek
  • Wythenshawe Park Horticultural Centre, farm and stables. 


Our allotments are open for those who own a plot. Please make sure you're following the Government's advice on social distancing. Communal spaces such as toilets, allotment shops and kitchens remain closed.

Visiting parks and green spaces

You can now visit our parks for more than just exercising, either alone, with people you live with at home, or with up to five people from other households. If you visit with someone or several people you do not live with, you must remain two metres apart at all times. 

You may drive to outdoor publicly accessible open spaces irrespective of distance, but should follow social distancing guidance whilst you are there. You should plan ahead to ensure that, where you are visiting places, you have checked that they are open and appropriately prepared for visitors. When travelling to outdoor spaces, it is important that people respect the rules in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
