  • Playgrounds and the Skatepark are open to the public as of June 12th. 
    ​Every person who visits the playground or skatepark must follow public health orders in order to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, including:

    • People exhibiting signs of illness should not enter parks or playgrounds.
    • People not from the same household or extended household should maintain two metres of physical distancing at all times.
    • Limit gathering with other people when entering and leaving the park/playground and supervising children playing (e.g. paths, benches, picnic areas).
    • Group sizes must comply with the public gathering restrictions.
    • If an area is busy, such as playground equipment or park space, come back when it’s not as busy or use another play area.
    • Do not share toys or sports equipment between groups.
    • Practice proper hand hygiene before, during and after play: Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water or, when unavailable, with hand sanitizer.
    • Refrain from touching your face.
    • Consider limiting children and other members of your household to only visiting playgrounds close to your home. This will help limit the number of people your family may come into contact with.
