Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Chaulden Adventure Playground is now operating its term time hours (3.30pm to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday). Our Youth Club (held on Tuesday nights, 7pm to 9pm) has also restarted.

The maximum number of people who can use the playgrounds at any one time is 200, inclusive of adults. We will, however, be monitoring COVID-19 transmission rates across the borough, and will reduce or increase our maximum numbers accordingly in order to keep our families safe. Children aged under five years are exempt. Up to 16 people are permitted to use the cabins, inclusive of adults.
