Update on Medway's country parks | Medway Council
Published: Saturday, 20th February 2021

Due to high visitor numbers at our country parks today (20 Feb) we had to close some of the facilities to ensure the safety of our visitors, following police advice.

The car parks and cafes will reopen at Riverside and Capstone country parks tomorrow (21 Feb) but the children’s play areas will remain closed to help keep visitors safe. 

If you’re planning to enjoy the forecasted sunshine during your daily exercise tomorrow, please follow social distancing guidelines and stay local where possible. 

Although the case rates may have reduced over recent weeks, national lockdown restrictions remain in place. Please only make essential journeys and continue to follow government guidelines to help prevent the rate from increasing.

We will continue to work closely with the police and review based on their advice.
