The three play parks on St. Mary’s Island have been monitored by CCTV over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd March to see how these are being used by the public.
It is clear that social distancing rules are not being observed within the play areas. Furthermore, Chatham Maritime Trust considers the risk of potentially spreading the virus are increased by the constant use of the play equipment by children. The decision has therefore been taken to close the parks effective Monday 23rd March; signage is displayed on the entrance to each park.
We wish to keep everyone safe and thank you for your understanding in such unprecedented circumstances.
