Cambridge City Council is urging people to follow the advice on social distancing when visiting its historic commons, recreation grounds and parks this Easter bank holiday weekend.
Councillors are asking visitors to "do their bit" and to be responsible and stay at least two metres apart while they are enjoying the fresh air and exercise.
Cllr Katie Thornburrow, Executive Councillor for Planning Policy and Open Spaces, said: “We know how much people value our parks and open spaces as places to get fresh air, exercise and to simply enjoy being outside.
“This has never been more important than now because we find ourselves in the most challenging of times during which we need to look after our physical and mental wellbeing.
“Our open spaces are particularly important for people who have no garden or outside space of their own. We really do want to keep our open spaces available but we need everyone to do their bit when it comes to social distancing."
It comes as the Chief Constable of Norfolk police is also urging people to respect the government guidelines and stay at home this bank holiday weekend.
Officers will be out patrolling beaches and beauty spots across the East.
Simon Bailey said the force received more than 300 calls last weekend from members of the public reporting people who were flouting the lockdown rules.
He's asking communities to "ensure that we as a county are doing our best to protect the NHS and to save lives".
