National lockdown: stay at home

Due to the latest Government restrictions all of our leisure facilities are now closed until further notice. This includes all Leisure Centres, Horsehay Village Golf Centre, Telford Ski and Snowboard Centre, Telford Ice Rink and the Town Park Visitor Centre.

We’re sure you can appreciate the situation we find ourselves in is constantly changing and we are having to react with very short notice to changes in tiers and guidance.

Our play areas in the Town Park will remain open but the Cherry and Maxell gardens will be closed to public.

Our fishing pegs are now open, view the guidance on fishing.

We will also be opening the external toilets in the Town Park by the visitor centre and these will be open daily Monday – Sunday between 11am - 2pm, they will close for cleaning in rotation during these opening hours.

National lockdown guidance

Whilst in the Town Park we ask that you adhere to the central government guidance:

  • do not meet others from outside your household or support bubble socially unless for a permitted reason
  • exercise is permitted on your own or with your household or support bubble
  • please stay 2 meters apart from people you do not live whilst in the Town Park or 1 metre with extra precautions in place such as wearing a face mask.

We are hoping that we will be able to re- open when restrictions are lifted. We will keep you informed about our plans.
