Leamington Opening Some Outdoor Recreational Amenities

Posted on Wednesday May 20, 2020

 

 

 

Effective immediately, the Municipality of Leamington has opened the following outdoor recreational amenities:

  • Municipal parks and parking lots
  • Rotary Leash Free Dog Park
  • The Leamington Skatepark
  • Picnic sites, benches and shelters located in parks and recreational areas

The previous provincial restrictions that closed these areas to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted as part of the Ontario Government’s first stage of reopening.

Park crews continue to work to set out picnic tables in advance of the weekend and citizens are advised that picnic tables, benches, railings, etc., located in municipal parks and recreational areas are not sanitized. 

Members of the public are asked to maintain physical distancing at all times, limit groups to five people or fewer and carry hand sanitizer.

Public washrooms in parks will remain closed as the Municipality develops sufficient sanitizing and cleaning standards. Washrooms are expected to open soon.  

Outdoor playgrounds, play structures and equipment and splash pads remain closed until later stages of the province’s reopening plan.

As the Ontario Government continues to lift restrictions, the Municipality will require time to prepare amenities for safe use relative to the COVID-19 pandemic. As amenities reopen, the Municipality will continue to share information publicly at leamington.ca/COVID-19 and through our social media channels.
