Lights at Randwick City sports fields will be turned on until 9pm each night to allow more time and space for people to exercise during lockdown Randwick Mayor Danny Said announced today.
Ten parks and sports fields will be lit in the evenings to provide additional opportunities for exercise and recreation particularly for people working during the day who may not get the opportunity during daylight hours.
“Exercise for health and wellbeing is one of the reasons for leaving home at the moment, but shorter winter days means it can be a challenge for people to get outside while it’s light,” stated Mayor Said.
“Turning on the lights provides longer periods of time for people to exercise. This should also help to reduce crowding at our popular outdoor spaces, which will allow people to exercise more safely.
“It’s important to keep in mind social distancing during this time and to wash or sanitise your hands after being outside and, of course, if you feel unwell it’s best to stay home.”
The following parks are lit until 9pm:
- Burrows Park, Clovelly
- Kensington Oval, Kensington
- Snape Park, Maroubra
- Coral Sea Park, Maroubra
- Pioneers Park Upper, Malabar
- Chifley Reserve, Chifley
- Yarra Upper, Yarra Bay
- Latham Park, South Coogee
- Paine Reserve, Randwick
- Sections of Heffron Park, Maroubra
