People enjoyed the sun at a West Bridgford parkas police upped patrols due to a “longstanding problem” there.
Visitors kept their distance from one another when they visited on Wednesday, March 31 amid high temperatures.
However, according to police, large crowds and people breaking Covid rules has been an ongoing issue at Bridge Field park, located just off Bridgford Road.
They are working with Rushcliffe Borough Council to try to resolve the problem.
Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “The focus is on the city but if there are difficulties elsewhere there will be resources.
“There has been a longstanding problem at the playing fields in West Bridgford at Bridge Field Park, and there are extra patrols down there.
“We have been working really hard with Rushcliffe Borough Council.
“Councils don’t want to close parks if they don’t need to, but it’s being forced on them.”
It comes as the decision has been made to close Arboretum and Lenton Recreation Ground to prevent crowds gathering there, with the gates being locked and no-one allowed in.
There was also huge amount of litter left at Forest Recreation Ground on Wednesday morning after large groups of people gathered there the day before.
Jen Grier, 61, who was out for a walk, told Nottinghamshire Live: “It was a lot worse than this yesterday – it was packed. I saw some workers from the council going round trying to talk to people.
“But I’ve seen the videos and pictures from other places and they are just disgraceful.
“Hopefully people take their rubbish home with them and are respectful. If they aren’t they will ruin it for the rest of us.
Another woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I don’t see the problem if it is like this, like it is today.
“I don’t see any groups of more than six. People have been inside so long they should be allowed to go out and enjoy the weather.”
