Parks to close in Neath Port Talbot for the next 4 weeks

22 March 2020

Following the Government’s statements in the last 24 hours underlining the urgent need for people to comply with social distancing advice, we are closing all Council owned parks for the next 4 weeks.


This decision will be implemented when parks close this evening.  Please avoid going to our parks during today.

The parks affected include Margam Country Park, Gnoll Country Park, as well as other parks and playgrounds across the county borough.

The Leader of the Council, Cllr Rob Jones, said “ I am taking the decision to close the Council’s parks for the next 4 weeks as it is imperative we heed Government advice to stay at home where possible and adopt social distancing measures. We have a clear opportunity now to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and we must all play our part to keep our communities safe and well.”
