Lee Valley Farms - Lee Valley Park Farms | Family day out | Essex |

Cornavirus covid-19 update

Coronavirus Update 1 July 2020

We hope you’re keeping well at this difficult time.

We’ve been carefully assessing Government announcements on how venues we’ve had to close can reopen. We want to play our part in helping everyone get back to normal through exercise, staying healthy and having fun – and, while we want to reopen quickly we, of course, need to do this in ways which are both safe and financially viable.

At Lee Valley, we kept our green spaces open throughout the crisis and have restarted some leisure activities, but getting all our activities up and running won’t be speedy or straightforward.

The pandemic has had a huge financial impact on Lee Valley Regional Park Authority which owns and runs Lee Valley Park Farms. Most of the Authority’s income comes through activities we sell in spring and summer, which have been heavily affected by lockdown. So far we’ve already lost around £3m - a quarter of our expected income this year and, like so many other leisure organisations, we need to reopen carefully, responsibly and safely in a staged way to build back up to providing visitors with their favourite activities and to make sure we’re here for you long term.

We’ve assessed how we could reopen Lee Valley Park Farms safely, but unfortunately we face particular problems because of the continued need for social distancing, the farms’ pathways which are narrow in places and the way that most visitors understandably stop at various spots around the farms. We continue to work on this and hope to have Lee Valley Park Farms open again soon.

We want you back as soon as we can. Visitors are what we’re here for – we can’t wait to see you all again, so please bear with us.
