Any idea when the playgrounds might reopen?

So we have been given dates when shops can start to reopen & schools are beginning to stagger their reopening from Monday.
Has anything been said about playgrounds in parks reopening? This would make a huge difference to us, just in terms of places to go and things to do? Just wondering if I'd missed something or if it's a council by council decision?

In Scotland it will be phase 2. We are possibly starting phase 1 in Thursday

According to the roadmap, leisure facilities - which I'm presuming children's playgrounds would come under - are in stage 3. Depending on how successful opening schools and non essential shops goes, stage is expected to open early July (4th I think).

That's for England.

That would make sense, classing it as "leisure", thank you.
Guess I was hoping the answer would be "tomorrow".... smile

I said to dh last night I wouldn't be surprised if they forget to reopen them.

I wonder if it's on their radar.

I don't know for sure but "leisure" makes sense to me. But as Fluffy says I wouldn't be surprised if the government completely forgets 🤦🏻‍♀️.
