Guidelines for Using Municipal Recreation Amenities

Municipal playgrounds, the Community Wellness Park, and the Skate Park are open for use in Sidney.

Signage is posted at municipal recreational amenities advising that equipment and other park surfaces are not being sanitized. Parents and guardians can make an informed decision before allowing their children to use these amenities.

The Town is asking everyone to use recreational facilities safely. Guidelines for use include:

  • Do not use or visit if you are sick;
  • Wash or sanitize your hands thoroughly and frequently;
  • Keep at least two metres away from people from other households;
  • Do not share equipment, water bottles, or snacks; and
  • Remain courteous and limit use if others are waiting to use the facility.

Public washroom facilities are available at Iroquois Park & Tulista Park for handwashing before and after use of the playgrounds. If you are planning to visit one of the Town’s other playgrounds or the Community Wellness Park, you are advised to bring your own hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes for hand cleaning before and after using the playground. Please dispose of used sanitizing wipes responsibly.

For more information for parents and families about using playgrounds during COVID-19, visit the BC Centre for Disease Control's website.

Public Washrooms

Public Washrooms at 9813 Fourth Street (8 am - 6 pm), Iroquois Park (dawn to dusk), and Tulista Park (8 am to 4:30 pm) have been kept open for public use with enhanced cleaning procedures.
