GLGT: Reopening of some park facilities & resumption of services in Phase 2

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced on 15 June the resumption of activities as part of Phase Two of the post Circuit Breaker reopening. In line with this, from 19 June onwards, people visiting our parks may do so in groups of up to
five.

Park facilities including playgrounds, skate parks, hardcourts, fishing areas, dog runs, beaches, lawns and fields, shelters, and car parks will be reopened. Food & beverage, retail, recreation and convenience outlets in gardens, parks and nature reserves will be reopened, subject to safe management measures as stipulated in the Enterprise Singapore (ESG) guidelines. Function spaces will also be reopened for wedding solemnisations, subject to a cap of 20 persons (excluding the Solemniser) or less, depending on the venue’s capacity based on safe management principles.

Activities such as having picnics and recreational games will be permitted, in addition to exercises such as walking, running, static exercises, taichi and cycling. Visitors engaging in sports and physical exercises should observe the safe management
measures as stipulated in the Sport Singapore guidelines. For preschools, groups of up to 10 students with two staff will be permitted in our gardens and parks.

Camping sites, barbeque pits, galleries and attractions such as National Orchid Garden will remain closed for now as these settings tend to involve large numbers of
people who are likely to come into close contact, often in enclosed spaces and for prolonged periods of time, thereby increasing the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

We would like to remind park visitors that for their own safety and those around them,that they are required to wear a mask except when engaging in strenuous exercises or consuming food, drink or medication, and observe a safe distance of at least one metre from other visitors. All park visitors are to observe the advisories put up in our gardens, parks and nature reserves.

All gardening activities at Community in Bloom gardens including allotment gardens will be limited to groups of up to five persons each. Gardeners must wear masks at all times and observe safe distancing measures.

Visits to Singapore's nature areas for recreation will be possible again from Friday (June 19), with previously closed areas, such as carparks and dog runs in parks, as well as beaches, being reopened to the public.

But while more activities will be allowed in phase 2 of the gradual reopening of the economy, the National Parks Board (NParks) and the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) reminded people on Wednesday evening that they should do so safely, by adhering to measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19, like limiting groups to just five people.

Park facilities including playgrounds, skate parks, hard courts, fishing areas, dog runs, beaches, lawns and fields, shelters and carparks will be reopened, said NParks.

So will food and beverage, retail, recreation and convenience outlets in gardens, parks and nature reserves, subject to safe management guidelines.

And while space such as function rooms will also be reopened for wedding solemnisations, this is subject to a cap of 20 people, excluding the solemniser, depending on the venue's capacity.

Preschool group of up to 10 students with two staff will also be permitted in gardens and parks, said NParks.

Recreational activities such as picnics or kite-flying were previously not allowed at parks and nature reserves in Singapore during the circuit breaker period. People were allowed to visit these spaces only to exercise.

But come Friday, activities such as having picnics and recreational games will be permitted, said NParks, although visitors must wear a mask, except when engaging in strenuous exercises.

Similarly, SLA also said on Wednesday that its playfields, as well as the beaches at St John's, Lazarus and Kusu islands, which are located off Singapore's southern coast, will be reopened.

However, the St John's Island Lodge, which includes the holiday bungalow and three campsites on St John's Island, will remain closed for now, said the SLA.

This is because activities there tend to involve large numbers of people who are likely to come into close contact and for prolonged periods of time, thereby increasing the risk of transmission of Covid-19.

NParks also said that some of its facilities, including camping sites, barbeque pits, galleries and attractions such as the National Orchid Garden will remain closed for now.

A list of public facilities and services that will reopen in Phase 2 can be found*here https://www.sgpc.gov.sg/sgpcmedia/me...e%20Two%20.pdf

Playgrounds and beaches will reopen as soon as Singapore enters the*second phase of its post-"circuit breaker" transition*on Friday,*said the Public Service Division (PSD) on Wednesday (Jun 17) in announcing a list of places which will open to the public.

Facilities in public housing estates, parks and most sport facilities are among venues that will*reopen.

However, libraries and*museums will remain closed at the start of Phase 2 and "progressively open later", said PSD in a media release.

"Our primary consideration is to safeguard the health and well-being of the public and staff," it added.

"To minimise the risks of outbreaks of infection, other facilities that may involve large numbers of people interacting with one another in enclosed spaces, or for prolonged period of time, will not reopen for the time being. They may reopen later, and in a limited way."



WHAT'S OPEN ON JUN 19

Places that were closed during Phase 1 and will reopen in Phase 2 include those*under the*National Parks Board, Singapore Land Authority, Sentosa Development Corporation and town councils.*

Playgrounds, skate parks, fishing areas, dog runs, beaches, car parks, as well as food and beverage and retail outlets are among those that will reopen in gardens, parks and nature reserves.

Function spaces will also reopen for wedding solemnisations. The event will be subject to a cap of 20 people - excluding the solemniser -*or less, depending on the venue's capacity, the National Environment Agency (NEA)*said*in a media advisory.

Activities such as picnics and recreational games will be allowed, up to a maximum of five people in a group.

"For pre-schools, groups of up to 10 students with two staff will be permitted in our gardens and parks," said NEA.

The agency added that all landscape-related services and nurseries will resume, as will*all animal-related activities such as the sale and adoption of pets, as well as*pets boarding.

A majority of SportSG facilities as well as*vacant open fields owned by the State will reopen.

All beaches and nature walks in Sentosa will also reopen, as will common property such as playgrounds, fitness corners and seating areas in public housing estates.

Beaches at St John’s, Lazarus and Kusu islands will also reopen to the public on*Friday.

However, St John’s Island Lodge, which includes the holiday bungalow and three campsites, will remain closed for now, said SLA.

WHAT'S CLOSED AT START OF PHASE 2, BUT WILL PROGRESSIVELY OPEN LATER

Certain venues will remain closed at the start of Phase 2 but will "progressively open later", said PSD.

These include: Public libraries, National Library Building, National Archives of Singapore, museums and heritage institutions, as well as exhibition or gallery spaces.

WHAT'S CLOSED FOR THE WHOLE OF PHASE 2

While many venues at parks and gardens will reopen, barbecue pits, camping sites, galleries and attractions at those places will remain closed, said PSD.

All indoor and outdoor performance venues, such as theatres, performance halls and blackboxes, will also remain closed - except for workplace activities and training or wor

[Let’s Stay Safe Together]
We’re stepping into Phase 2 on 19 June 2020. While we work on opening up facilities and services such as lawns, beaches, fitness corners, car parks, shelters and F&B/recreational outlets in our gardens and parks, we call on everyone to play your part.

If you’re heading to our green spaces, do the right thing and be socially responsible! Maintain a safe distance from other park goers and keep to not more than 5 people in a group. Always wear a mask, except when you’re engaged in strenuous exercises or consuming food, drink or medication.

I will follow (should we mention medication too?)
Do check out the visitorship levels of our parks using our safe distancing portal (https://safedistparks.nparks.gov.sg) before you head down and avoid the ones with high visitorship.

A little bit of effort from all of us will go a long way in keeping all of us safe! 😊

For the latest advisories and updates on our parks and gardens, please visit www.nparks.gov.sg/noticeboard

星期五开始,本地公园内的设施将重新开放,结群到公园的公众不能超过五人。

国家公园局发表文告说,公园里的餐饮场所、游乐设施、停车场等都会重新开放,但人们必须遵守安全距离。

人们也获准在公园野餐、散步、运动等。学前教育中心可由两名职员负责带领不超过十名儿童到公园。

文告说,公园内仍然不允许露营和烧烤活动、而国家胡姬园也会继续关闭,避免人潮聚集。

Singapore's beaches and nature areas will reopen on Friday, June 19, 2020.

Previously closed, park facilities including playgrounds, skate parks, hard courts, fishing areas, dog runs, beaches, lawns and fields, shelters and car parks will be reopened, the National Parks Board (NParks) said.

Areas such as car parks and dog runs in parks will be accessible again to the public, with phase two kicking in.

Even though more activities will be allowed, NParks and the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) reminded people they should carry them out safely, such as limiting groups to just five people.

Food and beverage, retail, recreation and convenience outlets in gardens, parks and nature reserves, will be subject to safe management guidelines.

Preschool group of up to 10 students with two staff members will also be permitted in gardens and parks, NParks said.

Recreational activities allowed again

Recreational activities such as picnics or kite-flying were previously not allowed at parks and nature reserves in Singapore during the circuit breaker period.

These spaces could only allow visits for exercise activities.

But come Friday, activities such as having picnics and recreational games will be permitted, although visitors must wear a mask, except when engaging in strenuous exercises.

The SLA also said on Wednesday that its playfields, as well as the beaches at St John's, Lazarus and Kusu islands, which are located off Singapore's southern coast, will be reopened.

Some areas still closed

The St John's Island Lodge, which includes the holiday bungalow and three campsites on St John's Island, will remain closed for now, said the SLA.

This is because activities there tend to involve large numbers of people who are likely to come into close contact and for prolonged periods of time.

NParks also said that some of its facilities, including camping sites, barbecue pits, galleries and attractions such as the National Orchid Garden will remain closed for now.
