City will close vehicular access and parking lots to three closed popular park destinations
Effective Friday, April 10, the City will close vehicular access and parking lots to three of its parks that are currently closed but continue to be popular destinations for residents – Britannia Park, Mooney’s Bay and Petrie Island.
These measures are in place to further support the City park closures and provincial gathering restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The access closures and restrictions include:
- Main entrance at Greenview and Carling avenues: The northbound lane of Greenview Avenue, off Carling Avenue, will be blocked and restricted to local traffic only.
- Greenview Avenue, south of Don Street: Access to Greenview Avenue, south of Don Street, will blocked and closed to all traffic.
- Main entrance at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Ridgewood Avenue: The vehicle entrance leading to the Mooney’s Bay parking lot will be blocked and closed to all traffic. The turning and merge lanes on the west side of Riverside Drive will have traffic barrels to divert traffic away from the blocked entrance.
- Trim Road and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard intersection: Trim Road, north of the Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard intersection, will be closed to all traffic.
The park closures for these three parks remain the same as other City parks. Walking through a park to reach your destination or for exercise is permitted, provided you do not linger or gather with others, play or undertake any other activity. Be sure you practice physical distancing by keeping two metres from other people who may be walking or jogging directly through the park.
