Public playgrounds are set to re-open across the Wingecarribee Shire as COVID-19 restrictions are eased throughout the state.
Council has progressively begun re-opening public playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor exercise equipment across the Shire as of May 18.
The re-opening is in line with the NSW Government's recently announced first stage easing of social restrictions.
Prior to playgrounds and exercise facilities re-opening, council will first conduct an inspection of all play equipment, remove safety tape and erect new health and safety signage.

Council also reminds users that it is their responsibility to leave the area if it is too busy.
All council-managed playgrounds, skateparks and outdoor exercise equipment are expected to be re-opened by May 22.
Council thanks all facility users for their continued co-operation and apologises for any temporary inconvenience.
