Parks & Open Spaces

To do our part to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Oakham Town Council have taken the very difficult decision to close all its play areas, as a precautionary measure with immediate effect until further notice.

Council apologises for any inconvenience, but we believe that this decision is the right thing to protect the health and wellbeing of our community.

As well as tending the grounds your Council also provides and maintains the play equipment in all three parks. All the equipment is regularly maintained and inspected for safety. However occasionally something is damaged or goes wrong.

 If you see any damage we will be pleased if you will let us know by contacting the Clerk on 01572 723627 or by e-mail: This way we can all help to ensure the equipment is safe for our children to use.

It is with regret we feel it is both necessary and sensible to cancel all Cutts Close park events for the foreseeable future.

Throughout the summer the bandstand in Cutts Close is regularly put to good use by ‘Bands in the park’ on Sundays, funded and hosted by the Town Council. We also host family fun days and similar events and provide facilities for other organisations’ events, all helping to make Oakham a pleasant place to live.
