In accordance with most recent revisions to Provincial Public Health Orders regarding outdoor recreational spaces, the city would like to announce the following changes:

Effective Saturday, December 12, all city play structures, outdoor fitness equipment, toboggan hills, and outdoor rinks will be open. Currently city staff are preparing the outdoor rink at T.G. Smith Centre and the pleasure skating rink beside the Jake Epp Library. Both rinks will be open as soon as preparations are complete and weather permitting. The T.G. Smith Centre building will remain closed and dressing rooms and washrooms will not be available.

Anyone using city outdoor recreational facilities must follow all provincial public health orders including maintaining a separation of at least two metres from others, unless belonging to the same household. Also, people must not engage in activities as part of a group of more than five people, unless they all reside in the same household. Organized practices, games or outdoor sporting competitions of any kind are prohibited.

In compliance with the Province’s Code Red Restrictions all indoor recreation facilities remain closed to the public.
