As Town facilities and select parks open, it will take time to reopen after any provincial announcements are made. We must do our due diligence, as many of these reopening's will require new safety protocols for users and staff, along with time to perform the necessary maintenance to open park amenities and Town facilities. Please review the table below for an up to date listing of parks, amenities, and facilities that are open.

While some amenities are open, the provincial order includes no more than 50 people gathered at one time indoors and 100 people gathered outdoors. Please continue practice physical distancing and wear a non-medical mask while indoors.
