Media Release - July 23, 2020

As the Niagara Region advances into Stage 3 of Provincial Recovery on Friday, July 24, 2020, the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake will continue to reopen Town facilities and amenities only when it is possible to do so in a manner that helps protect the health and well being of the public and of Staff.

Beginning Friday, Town-owned sports fields will be available for group rental, and Staff will be reopening playgrounds by removing protective fencing and installing new signage. Anybody wishing to use the equipment is reminded to adhere to the recommendations of Public Health officials, including maintaining physical distancing, practicing proper hand hygiene, and refraining from touching your face. Please note, playground equipment and amenities will not be sanitized.

The Memorial Park washroom will reopen on Monday, July 27, 2020, and will be available to the public from 9 AM to 9 PM, 7-days per week.

While the washroom will be regularly cleaned, according to Provincial requirements and Public Health standards, it will not be staffed like the Queen’s Royal Park, Simcoe Park or Market Street washrooms, as it does not serve the same volume of people. Signs will be posted, encouraging users to follow Public Health standards. While the Meridian Credit Union Arena and Centennial Arena remain closed, discussions are underway to determine appropriate dates for reopening.

“We are happy to be able to reopen some of our amenities for public use,” stated Interim CAO Sheldon Randall. “Although the framework for Stage 3 may allow for more facilities to be reopened, it is important that we continue to proceed in a cautious manner, only reopening a facility when we know we will be able to operate it safely.”
