Queen’s Drive Space has now reopened.
Following changes to the regulations by the Government, the play area on Queen's Drive Space will reopen to the public on Monday 13 July 2020.
New signage will be in place to remind people to maintain social distancing, to wash their hands thoroughly before and after their visit, to take their own hand sanitiser wherever possible and not to eat and drink whilst using play equipment. Users are also asked to take their litter home or to dispose of it in the bins provided, be considerate of other park users and if any play area appears busy, they should come back at a later time.
As with all outdoor equipment that can be used by everyone, play areas cannot be guaranteed to be free of COVID-19. Parents should supervise their children at all times and should take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and their children while using the equipment.
Government guidance says parents, guardians and carers should sanitise children's hands both before and after using the play equipment.
Queen's Drive Space is a temporary attraction which opened up within the Queen's Drive development site in May 2018.
The area offers a Jurassic-themed free play area, an events space for open air screenings, music and summer gatherings and an area to sit, eat and drink offering high quality food and drink from producers in the area.
Following another successful season in 2019, East Devon District Council are asking users to give their feedback to help with their planning for summer 2020.
Following its first season in 2018, East Devon District Council commissioned the South West Research Company to conduct a survey amongst users of Queen’s Drive Space. The brief was to understand who was using the area and what they thought of the temporary facilities being provided. Feedback from visitors to Exmouth’s new temporary Queen's Drive Space has been overwhelmingly positive; you can download the full report via the link below:
Visitors were asked in summer 2018 what one thing they enjoyed most about their visit to Queen's Drive Space and a selection of their comments can be read in the following link:
