Covid-19: Bishops Park to re-open to pedestrians in July
In the light of the announcement by Carmarthenshire County Council to re-open Carmarthenshire parks and gardens, the Tywi Gateway Trust are working with the Council and the site contractors to safely re-open the Bishops Park, Abergwili to the public.
As well as social distancing amongst the park’s visitors, arrangements need to be made to keep our site contractors, volunteers and staff safe. With the increased activity and vehicle movements of two contractor teams on site we will also have to restrict vehicle access.
When we re-open in July we will therefore be welcoming visitors on foot only.
For further information please see the Tywi Gateway Trust Facebook Page.
