Coronavirus precautions in parks
You are welcome to use parks and green spaces for health reasons as long as you follow social distancing rules below. This may even mean not entering a park if it is already busy.
Please follow government advice:
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- Stay at home as much as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Limit contact with other people
- Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- Wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
To maintain safety for the public; children’s play areas are closed, non-essential parks operations are currently suspended, and cafes and kiosks are closed.

Bath & North East Somerset Council and Keynsham Town Council are working with the local community to develop a long-term plan for how Kelston Road Park can be improved and maintained in the future. We want to make the park a safer and more pleasant place for people to spend time, socialise, play, be active and enjoy nature. We also want to ensure that the park is able to meet future demands such as climate change and the growing population in Keynsham.
What has happened so far?
Change is coming to Kelston Road Park!
Thank you to all of those who took part in the consultation activities. The proposal for the park has been well supported and the improvements will now go ahead.
Phase 1 improvements will include:
- New seats and signs
- Tree planting
- Improved sports facilities
- Path and safety improvements
- Measures to prevent cars accessing the park
Phase 2 - Play Area Redevelopment
Work to completely redevelop the play area is due to start in September 2020. The play facilities have been designed to take account of results from the park consultation survey and Keynsham Town Council's children's survey and include a range of fun play equipment for children of all ages and abilities.
It is expected to take around 4-6 weeks to complete and the play area will be closed during this time to enable work to be completed safely.
The play area redevelopment is being paid for using Section 106 funds (contributions made by local developers), Community Infarstructure Levy (CIL) and a grant from Enovert Community Trust (through the Landfill Communites Fund).
