On May 19, the Province announced that as part of the first stage of its Framework for Reopening the Province it would permit the reopening of some outdoor recreational amenities.
Today, the Town of Huntsville announced which municipal spaces would be reopened.
In a media release, the Town said it would be taking a “phased and cautious approach” and asked residents to obey all posted signage as staff work to reopen its outdoor recreational amenities.
The following municipal outdoor recreational amenities will be reopened:
- Tennis, pickleball, basketball, and volleyball courts (Huntsville and Port Sydney);
- Skateboard parks (McCulley Robertson Recreation Park);
- Frisbee golf (McCulley Robertson Recreation Park);
- Off-leash dog areas and parks (McCulley Robertson Recreation Park)’;
- Benches, picnic tables and chairs will be re-installed as outdoor spaces are reopened (Huntsville and Port Sydney);
- Municipal beaches; and
- Walking track at Conroy Park (team sports are still restricted).
While using these amenities, the Town reminds residents to “maintain a 2m distance from others, avoid all gatherings of five or more and wash your hands frequently before and after use. If an outdoor space appears busy when you arrive, please try another location or come back later to enjoy.”
The following areas will remain closed until further notice:
- Sports fields (soccer and baseball diamonds) at McCulley Robertson Recreation Park;
- All Town outdoor playgrounds, play structures and equipment; and
- Use of facilities for organized sporting activities.
