Parks and Recreation Spaces are open!!

Parks and Recreation Spaces are open!!

In Edmonton outdoor recreation spaces have opened. Most playgrounds, skateparks, tennis, pickleball, volleyball and basketball courts, disc golf, outdoor fitness parks and athletic tracks in the City of Edmonton have reopened. Since May 22 when the parks opened, people have not been following AHS guidelines and have since been closed. Please follow all the necessary guidelines to remain safe and healthy.

The General Public Health Guidelines are as follows:

  • Gather in a group less than 50 people
  • Maintain 2 meters from others not in my household or cohort
  • Only share common equipment with my household or cohort
  • Stay home if I am experiencing symptoms (go home if I develop symptoms)
  • Was or sanitize my hands and cough/sneeze into my elbow or a tissue
  • Disinfect equipment before and after use
