Skate Parks and BMX
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.
The City of Greater Sudbury has a number of great facilities for those who like to skateboard and BMX.
Due to limited staffing, pad sweeping will be carried out monthly or as needed. Garbage collection is reduced to every seven to 10 days. Park equipment is not sanitized. Users are reminded to wash their hands well after use.
Physical distancing rules remain in effect and residents must stay two metres away from people who are not part of their household or social circle or “bubble.” The City will monitor the use of these spaces, and signage will be in place to remind users of the rules.
