Supporting social distancing in our parks
To enable people to use the city’s parks and open spaces safely during the coronavirus pandemic, Birmingham City Council’s grounds maintenance team has come up with a social distancing solution
From this week (commencing May 11), crews mowing grass at the city’s 591 sites are now cutting ‘channels’ that are roughly 2m in width.
They are then leaving channels of the same width uncut, to act as a visual and practical guide for the safe use of the city’s open spaces – following the Prime Minister’s national address on May 10, in which he eased some of the lockdown restrictions.
