The city reopened some of its outdoor rec areas in accordance with provincial guidelines and will work with Leduc Enforcement Services to ensure health orders are adhered to.
The City of Leduc reopened some of its outdoor recreation facilities this week.
Playgrounds, beach volleyball, disc golf, outdoor fitness areas and the Leduc Skateboard Park are now open for public use, with restrictions in place to ensure that provincial public health orders continue to be followed. Despite reopening non-aquatic outdoor recreation facilities for public use, provincial health restrictions remain in effect and must be observed by all users.
Staff with Leduc Enforcement Services will be monitoring for compliance with preventive measures and guidelines, which includes, but is not limited to:
- Limitations on mass gathering restrictions of no more than 50 people in outdoor spaces
- Physical distancing restrictions of up to 2 metres
- Mandatory isolation for those who have tested positive for the virus, who have recently travelled, who are displaying symptoms (with or without a positive test result), or who have had close contact with an individual who has tested positive for the virus.
The Leduc Recreation Centre, Alexandra Outdoor Pool and Leduc Spray Park will remain closed, per provincial guidelines, and Mayor Young was thankful for the public's help in working through the pandemic together.
“We appreciate the patience and understanding that our residents have demonstrated throughout the past number of weeks as we took the necessary steps to minimize the risk of exposure of this virus in our community,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “We are pleased to now have direction from the province that allows us to open these recreational facilities, and we trust that residents will continue to exercise caution and good judgment while enjoying these amenities so that they can remain open.”
