BBQs will not be permitted in any of our parks from 1st June 2022

Holding a Barbecue in our Parks

The Parks Trust has taken the decision not to allow BBQs in any of its parkland from 1st June 2022 due to the increasing risks to public safety and the environment.

Disposable BBQs are a dangerous fire risk and over recent years members of the charity’s team have had to put out numerous bin fires and deal with fire damage because of discarded or uncontrolled BBQs.

Recently, large groups have been gathering in and misusing BBQ areas in the parks and the associated litter and mess that this has created has put increasing pressures on our team and resources. The BBQ areas at Campbell Park, Caldecotte Lake North and Simpson Road are being removed on Tuesday 24th May in preparation for 1st June.

We thank visitors in advance for their cooperation and understanding and please ask that you take your litter home.
