Leisure and lifestyle COVID-19 - Update March 2021

From 29 March 2021, Rock Park Skatepark, Barnstaple and Benricks Skatepark, Ilfracombe and BMX Track, Braunton will reopen for public use.

All of our parks and play areas are open for public use and we urge any users to follow the safety signage which has been put up at these facilities.

In line with the government guidance, you can meet outside in groups of up to 6 people.

As with all outdoor equipment that can be accessed by multiple people, play areas cannot be guaranteed to be free of COVID-19. Parents should supervise their children at all times and should take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and their children while using the equipment.

From 12 April 2021, as per the Government guidelines, gym and swimming facilities at both North Devon Leisure Centre and Ilfracombe Pool are open to the public. Group exercise classes will return from 17 May 2021.
