The amenities include;
- Football pitches and pavilions managed by the Council

- Edmondscote Athletics Track and its gym and pavilion
Whilst the parks will remain open, the Council will be suspending all exercise permits for group activities.
Warwick Distict Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented;
“It is with utmost regret that the Council has been forced to close these facilities for a second time. However, our overwhelming priority has to be the health and safety of all of our residents. These measures have been put in place to save lives and protect our NHS and we urge local residents to play their part.”
