If you live in the Ku-ring-gai Council area and have little ones, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Ku-ring-gai have decided to reopen some of their playgrounds from Friday 6 August!

When Covid-19 restrictions were imposed in June, Ku-ring-gai Council was the only council on the North Shore that decided to close all their playgrounds for the lockdown period.

But that is about to change! A decision has been made to reopen nine playgrounds in the Ku-ring-gai local government area.

At the beginning of the lockdown a risk assessment was undertaken and due to the unknown and contagious nature of the COVID-19 Delta variant, the Crisis Management Team initially decided to close all Ku-ring-gai playgrounds. 

Due to the low local transmission rates in the Ku-ring-gai Local Government Area, changes in the public health order limiting movement to a 10km radius and Council’s ability to schedule the cleaning of the 9 playgrounds a two week trial period will commence from Friday 6 August

Covid-safe tips for visiting playgrounds

The last thing we want is for Covid-19 to break out on the North Shore! So be Covid-safe at all times.

  • If you are sick, or anyone in your family is sick, stay home. Do not leave the house to visit a playground. Get tested for Covid-19 and isolate until you get a negative result.
  • When you arrive, be sure to sign in with the QR code, so you can be notified if there was a Covid-19 case when you visited.
  • When you arrive, sanitise the hands of yourself and your children
  • Wear a face mask
  • Keep your distance from other families
  • If the playground is busy, rethink your plans and look at other options for play – like running around a park or oval, going on a bushwalk or kicking a ball
  • Sanitise your hands when you leave too
