Play areas CLOSED: When will children’s play grounds reopen? Devastating update

Boris Johnson today announced a raft of businesses will be able to reopen next month as he unveiled his future plan for coronavirus and the UK lockdown. Mr Johnson said: “From August 1, we will reopen most remaining leisure settings, namely bowling, skating rings, casinos and we will enable close contact services, beauticians to resume.” However, the update was bad news for families.

When will children’s play grounds reopen?

Mr Johnson said: “Nightclubs, soft play areas – sadly – need to remain closed for now, although this will be kept under review.

“We will restart indoor performances to a live audience, subject to the success of pilots, and we will also pilot larger gatherings in venues like sport stadia, with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn.

“We will also allow wedding receptions for up to 30 people.”

“It is my strong and sincere hope that we will be able to review the outstanding restrictions and allow a more significant return to normality from November, at the earliest, possibly in time for Christmas.”
