Covid-19 Latest update for Rivington Terraced Gardens

13th May 2021

The Terraced Gardens are open and free for the public to enjoy at all times.

As restrictions continue to ease, we have begun to welcome back our volunteers for sessions during the week. We are following the guidelines closely and are also beginning to tentatively explore how we will safely resume Weekend Task Days and possibly even public events by the Summer.

A few things to note:

  • The Toilets at the Great House Barn Information Centre are open with guidance for visitors.
  • All of the car parks in the area are open.
  • We experience a great amount of traffic and demand for car parking spaces – especially at weekends. We encourage you to try to visit at quieter times if possible.

These have been difficult times, but access to wonderful green spaces makes life better and the end is now – hopefully – in sight.

We need to raise £100,000 a year to maintain the gardens, and without Events and Open days, we will really struggle.
