Don’t use open gyms in parks, advise Delhi corporations | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: A day after deciding to open their parks for restricted hours, the south and north Delhi municipal corporations have advised residents not to touch open gym equipment and swings for children to contain the novel coronavirus infection.
While the north corporation opened around 6,000 parks on Friday, the other two civic bodies will throw them open from Saturday. However, most corporation parks are located in residential areas and it will be difficult to keep a watch with a few guards. Taking note of it, East Delhi Municipal Corporation will keep 300 of its 2,200 parks closed.
“Most of these 200 parks are located in congested areas while some have open gyms. If opened, it will be difficult to ensure that people don’t touch them at all,” said spokesperson Arun Kumar.
A south corporation official said a circular would be posted at the gates of around 6,800 parks requesting people to come only for jogging and walking from 7am to 7pm.
