Parks at night
Some parks in the borough will be locked again at night to help prevent vandalism and antisocial behaviour.
The vast majority of the borough’s parks and open spaces are accessible 24 hours a day, but a small number are fenced and gated which allow them to be locked between dusk and dawn.
The parks we lock at night have previously seen antisocial behaviour. During the lockdown we temporarily suspended the evening closure. Your elected representatives have now requested that this is re-instated.
The parks being locked between dusk and dawn are:
- Auriol Park
- Bourne Hall Park
- Ewell Court Park
- Gibraltar Recreation Ground
- Long Grove Park
- Nonsuch Park
- Poole Road Recreation Ground (King George V Playing Fields)
- Shadbolt Park
