Barbecue information for open spaces in Cambridge

The sun will hopefully make a reappearance after this little rainy interlude, so with this in mind, Cambridge City Council has asked locals to take care if they want to barbecue when out and about.


Because of the dangers involved and the damage that and incorrectly managed barbecue can do, it is actually an offence to use a barbecue in Cambridge's public open spaces.


Cambridge Council will have enforcement teams out to ensure this law is being upheld, but they have also provided dedicated barbecue areas in local parks.


BBQ stones installed at Jesus Green are designed to prevent damage to grass and allow people to enjoy the pleasure of outdoor cooking without inconveniencing any other park users and there are also other clearly marked areas at Sheep’s Green/Lammas Land and Byron’s Pool, which are clearly identifiable.


Make sure you obey a few simple rules, and you can grill your sausages to your hearts content!


  • Do not leave the BBQ unattended as it may pose a safety risk, particularly with children playing in the area
  • Ensure all coals are fully extinguished before disposal
  • Ensure the cooled trays are disposed of in the bins provided to avoid littering


Barbecues are a great way to enjoy the summer months, so take care to do things right.
