Cathedral Square Park closed due to health and safety concerns
The Cathedral Square Park and Playground has been closed due to health and safety concerns, the Gibraltar Sports and Leisure Authority (GSLA) has said.
The closure of the park and playground area will be temporary after being deemed unsafe and work are now set to begin immediately.
“Whilst remedial works have been undertaken on a regular basis, the park was earmarked for a potential refurbishment - a decision which has unfortunately been delayed,” a spokesman from the GSLA said.
“However, a very recent periodic review of the area has deemed it unsafe.”
“Works will therefore start immediately to address these specific health and safety concerns.”
“We will endeavour to have the area opened as quickly as possible but will not do so until we are certain that users can benefit from a safe environment.
“We thank the general public for continuing to work with us in ensuring that our amenities are of the standard expected.”
The GSLA added Gibraltar a high number of “very good quality children’s play areas” and hopes that the slight inconvenience caused to regular users of this area is mitigated by use of others available the public.
