With the warmer weather you will want to enjoy the outdoors. The City has implemented the Province’s stage one reopenings that relate to park amenities.
Outdoor sports facilities and multi-use fields are open, including:
- Baseball diamonds
- Soccer fields
- Frisbee golf locations
- Platform tennis
- Table tennis and pickleball courts
- Basketball courts
- BMX parks
- Skate parks
In addition, off-leash dog areas, benches, picnic areas and shelters are also open. Sports fields are available for casual use only and groups of no more than five people. In all cases, physical distancing of at least two metres is required.
Provincial orders remain in effect prohibiting the use of:
- Play structures
- Splash pads
- Wading pools
- Exercise equipment
Park ambassadors are there to help
Keep an eye out for City of Ottawa staff wearing green t-shirts in parks across the city. Park ambassadors can offer valuable information, answer questions and clarify any confusion you might have about what’s permitted in City parks, trails and natural areas – all while keeping a two metre distance of course!
