If visiting the park, for everyone’s health and safety please be aware of the following:

  • Park your car sensibly.
  • Ensure you socially distance at all times wherever you are in the park.
  • Comply with the COVID secure measures in place – this is especially the case in the Lakeside Café bar and patio area due to it being enclosed.

  • There is a one way system in operation for the Lakeside Café bar and patio area.
  • Most of the seating is located outside in the patio area but there is some limited, socially distanced indoor seating.
  • Please pay via card or contactless if you can.
  • There is a one way system for the toilets to the rear of the beach shop and it is ‘one in, one out’.
  • The indoor café toilets (including the disabled toilet) are open but with a one way system in place.
  • All toilets will be cleaned regularly so please be patient if you find the toilets closed for a few minutes.
  • A disabled toilet is available on request inside the Lakeside Café bar.
  • Hand sanitizers will be readily available.

The council will continually review the park’s operation in accordance with changing circumstances and government regulation.
