Coronavirus – visiting parks

We know how important and valued Lincoln’s parks and open spaces are, and in these unusual times they are more important than ever to many people. The vast majority of people are respecting social distancing measures when visiting the park, and are taking all reasonable steps to keep themselves and others safe.

When visiting Boultham Park or any other greenspace, please remember:

  • To maintain a gap of at least 2 metres between yourself and anyone else who isn’t from your household
  • Not to meet up with other households
  • To keep a close eye on your children and dogs, to ensure they also follow the rules
  • To wash your hands before and after visiting the park, and before touching your face or eating
  • To avoid driving to the park if at all possible
  • Not to ‘loiter’ in the park. Please try to keep moving, with only minimal breaks for a rest if needed

If everyone follows these rules, the risks of transmitting the virus during a visit to the park will be minimised.

Take care and keep safe

Boultham Park Summer Fair cancelled

It is with great disappointment that the 2020 Boultham Park Summer Fair has had to be cancelled, based on government advice in relation to Coronavirus.

Everyone involved is extremely disappointed, but this is the right thing to do under the current circumstances.

Coronavirus / covid-19 update

Please note that events / activities / volunteering groups are being cancelled from Monday 23rd March (some sooner), until further notice. We are sorry to have to take this step but in light of the most recent government advice it is the right thing to do, to delay the spread of the disease and protect those people in the ‘vulnerable’ categories.

We look forward to reinstating our activities, and to starting the exciting programme of events through the lake restoration project later in the year.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
