Kids can head back to more than 200 city-owned outdoor recreation spaces across the city starting Friday morning.
This includes playgrounds, picnic sites, washrooms, Douglas Park Track, BMX Parks, basketball courts and skateparks.
“Our community has done a great job working together to contain the spread of COVID-19,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “I want to recognize the kids and teens of Regina who stayed home as much as possible, and that meant not doing fun things like visiting friends or playing at the park. As outdoor recreation spaces reopen, I hope to see residents having fun but I encourage everyone to take smart precautions to ensure we can continue to keep these cherished spaces open.”
The City asks parents to talk to their children about the guidelines from public health officials when using outdoor spaces, including:
- Individuals who are sick should stay home.
- A physical distance of two metres should be maintained between people not from the same household or extended household.
- Parks and playgrounds will not be sanitized. Bring hand sanitizer and be sure to clean your hands before and after you play.
- Avoid overcrowding. Individual groups must not exceed the restrictions on public gatherings.
