Virus restrictions

Cancellation of events. As a result of Covid-19 virus regulations, we have cancelled the events that Friends of Locke Park usually runs and we are not opening Locke Park Tower until further notice. We are very sorry about this but everyone’s health and wellbeing has to be our priority.

In addition Barnsley parkrun and junior parkrun, like all parkruns, are not taking place.

Locke Park has remained open throughout for everyone to enjoy.

Locke Park cafe is open and the play equipment areas can be used again.

The bowling club in Locke Park is now running open days on Wednesdays between 10am and 2pm, with restricted numbers and extra precautions.

It’s important for us all to keep social distance and follow other guidance to keep everyone safe.
