Sefton’s parks, coast and natural offer still there to be enjoyed during COVID-19 outbreak

Sefton’s beautiful coastline, nature reserves and heritage parks are still there to be enjoyed during the COVID-19 outbreak, says the Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing.

Cllr Ian Moncur believes the ability to enjoy Sefton’s natural assets has become more important than ever, as people seek exercise and recreational activities during this time.

Sefton boasts 20 miles of coastline, an abundance of wildlife and a wealth of parks and other attractive outdoor spaces.

Cllr Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “As long as social distancing is practiced and people respect the current Government guidelines on limiting the spread of the coronavirus, then our nature reserves, parks and coastline all remain open for people to enjoy.

We are so fortunate in Sefton to have such beautiful natural assets on our doorstep and there are plenty of wonderful things to look out for at the minute as the natural world wakes up after winter.

So long as everyone acts responsibly at this time Sefton is the perfect place to get some fresh air and exercise and enjoy nature.”

Staffing at some locations may be reduced as a result of the continuing impact of the coronavirus. Visitors are politely asked to take any litter home with them at this time, particularly in more remote locations, if bin collection services are affected.

Green Sefton and Sefton Council will be keeping visitors updated via web and social media channels.

If you see anything that requires attention in any of our green spaces, email greensefton@sefton.gov.uk. Green Sefton may not be able to commit as many resources to regular inspections during the COVID-19 outbreak, so visitors can play their part in helping us to maintain our green spaces.
