Regina ball parks to open Monday

The City of Regina is preparing athletic fields and ball parks to open in stages, beginning on Monday.

The reopening of facilities aligns with Phase 4, Part 1 of the province’s Re-Open Saskatchewan plan.

Community operated ball parks will be open first. Those parks include Broad and 9th Avenue North, Columbus Park, Kiwanis Park, Kiwanis Park North, Lions Park, Pacers Park, Optimist Park, and Douglas Park.

All other ball parks and athletic fields, including lawn bowling greens, will open on June 27th.

The City says they are working cooperatively with community sports organizations to ensure guidelines are followed for the safety of everyone involved.

The City is urging people using outdoor recreation facilities to continue following health guidelines, including not sharing equipment, staying home if you are sick, maintaining physical distancing of two metres, and bringing hand sanitizer.
