All parks and open spaces
Play areas in the city will close with immediate effect to encourage people to practice social distancing. Please do not take your children to use play areas as the equipment surfaces can spread the virus. Other park areas and spaces are open but please follow the 2m apart rule.
Select a park or green space from the map below. If you require further information on environmental planning, please visit our Environmental Planning Pages.
Gloucester has a number of neighbourhood equipped play areas in the following locations:

Open space strategy
The Open Space Strategy for Gloucester (2014-2019) was approved in April 2014. The document sets out information on the city’s parks and open spaces and includes an action plan identifying priorities for shaping and managing the spaces in the future.

Small areas of unadopted/unowned/unmanaged areas of land
There are small areas of land throughout the City that often as part of the development process have not been taken on by a public body or management company. These areas can become a nuisance because they over grow the highway or indeed someone else’s private property. They may just appear untidy and unkempt.
Sometimes the best way forward is for an individual or community group to take ownership. If this is something you think you may wish to pursue, then please contact the Environmental Planning Manager on 396829 who will be able to advise you on how to go about it. If there is an overriding public safety or highway reason then the City or County Council may take it on, again contact the Environmental Planning Manager for more information.
