Skate Parks in Herefordshire can reopen, as long as they ensure that those using the parks can remain safe and adhere to social distancing.

The Council said:

“After reviewing the legislation/government guidance and seeking legal advice, Herefordshire Council is of the view that skateboarding is a ‘sport’ and therefore skate parks can remain open, provided measures are put in place to ensure social distancing and other control measures are put in place to minimise the risk of cross infection from COVID-19. We understand that the government’s announcements this evening have not altered this.”
