Read the latest news from the National Capital Commission and their policies on COVID-19 and its parks.
The NCC is doing its part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The situation evolves daily and we are working to comply with public health directives from all levels of government, particularly the recommendation that people should avoid all non-essential travel.
We encourage you to enjoy the outdoors close to home — on foot or by bike — rather than driving to a destination further from home.
You can still walk through some of the NCC recreational amenities, but only if:
- They are NOT listed as closed – see the website for the list.
- You can access them locally
- You respect public health recommendations, including physical distancing of two metres
You can also walk your dog where permitted, but you must keep your dog on leash at all times. This measure applies to areas normally identified as off-leash dog areas and parks.
Gatherings and loitering are not permitted at any time on NCC recreational amenities.
