"Our community has done well to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 virus, and we are pleased to reopen certain park amenities for public use", stated Mayor Steve Clarke.

Some city facilities will remain closed, including outdoor playgrounds, fitness equipment, public swimming pools, and splash pads.

Londoners may use outdoor sports fields and baseball diamonds for non-team sports.

Work to reopen all the parks will take place over the next few weeks, the city said.

Those include a range of picnic shelters, skate parks, soccer and multi-use outdoor fields, baseball diamonds, and basketball courts.

The City's COVID-19 Enforcement Team will continue monitoring popular parks across the city to ensure residents are practising physical distancing. "Please wash your hands after using them and be sure not to touch your face", the city said in a news release.

Only individual use is permitted at some park amenities.

All tennis and pickleball courts are expected to be open by the end of the week.

Cottage Grove City Hall reopened to the public Monday, May 18, and will be open each day from 8 a.m.to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Permits from the TDSB remain cancelled until further notice.

"The safety of Londoners and staff is our number one priority as we reopen park amenities", says Scott Stafford, managing director of Parks and Recreation.

Londoners will see new signage installed at spaces with open park amenities with these measures.

But the reopening on both city and school board property follows strict physical distancing guidelines in place since March by the city and the province.
