Baseball diamonds, tennis courts and the dog park remain closed.  They are expected to open by May 27, 2020.  New rules based on provincial restrictions and public health guidance for these facilities will be posted at each location upon opening. 

A reminder that although Provincial restrictions may be lifted for some properties or facilities, there are some that remain closed for seasonal preparation or we are preparing guidance on safe opening or modified use.
