Walthamstow skate park, tennis courts and bowls clubs to reopen from Saturday

Lloyd Park skate park in Walthamstow will reopen tomorrow, along with tennis courts and lawn bowls clubs.

Waltham Forest Council will now allow ten people at a time to use the skate park from tomorrow (May 23).

The tennis courts in Ridgeway Park, Lloyd Park and Abbots Park can now be booked online.

Playgrounds, outdoor gyms and any basketball and football courts remain closed for the time being.

In a statement on the council website, a spokesperson said: “We cannot open Cann Hall or Chase Lane skate parks due to their proximity to playground equipment which are still out of bounds.”

From tomorrow, Walthamstow Borough, Aveling Park and Chingford Bowls Clubs will also be allowed to reopen.

Current government guidelines state people can spend as much time as they choose outside but must remain two metres from anyone not in their household at all times.

Meetings with one person outside your household are permitted provided you adhere to social distancing rules.
