Conservation Areas and Trails

COVID-19 Update – April 8, 2021

The Province has declared a third state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A province-wide stay at home order is in effect.

Dog parks are open. Other parks, playgrounds and open spaces are open for pass-through purposes but cannot be used for team games or sports. The Jim Gordon Boardwalk (Bell Park), Delki Dozzi track and Fielding Memorial Park walking loop are open for summer walking opportunities. Benches, waste bins, gates, handrails and other surfaces are not sanitized.

When using any outdoor facility, users must maintain a distance of two metres from people who are not part of their household. A mask or face covering is recommended when physical distancing is a challenge.
