National lockdown: parks and leisure update

The government announced on Monday 4 January, following a rapid increase in Coronavirus (Covid-19) infection, there will be a new national lockdown.

Government guidance is to Stay at Home. You must not leave, or be outside of your home, except where necessary.

See the latest information on leisure, parks and markets.

Woodlands

Whilst woodlands are of great importance to wildlife, they also serve as a place of relaxation and tranquillity for local people to visit. Our two local nature reserves, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and Mudchute Park and Farm, contain wooded areas and woodland trails.

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park offers a range of monthly activities including opportunities for people to get involved with local conservation projects from planting trees, bulbs and wildflower plugs to carrying out coppicing and woodland crafts.

Mudchute Park and Farm is made up of grazing pastures, wildflower banks, woodland, hedgerows, ponds and a nature trail.
