Camden Council in North London decided to lock all of its gated parks because the snow has made paths slippery.Of course snow can be slippery. That makes it fun for kids.
It meant that children enjoying a day off because of school closures could not take advantage of the deepest snow for 20 years in at least four popular parks.
A spokesman for the council said that grit put down on the pathways on Sunday had not been enough to cope with the heavy snowfall overnight, so the parks had been closed on safety grounds.
