COVID-19 restrictions are easing, and that includes restrictions in our own backyard.
The District of Kent recently announced the reopening of outdoor spaces throughout the district.
Effective Friday (May 15), the following outdoor spaces will be open for public use:
Basketball courts at Centennial Park, Schep Park and Westlin Park
Skate park at Centennial Park
Sports Fields at Centennial Park (casual use only, no organized sports at this time)
“Public safety guidelines are in effect while using all opened outdoor spaces,” the announcement reads. “These include staying home if you are sick, physical distancing of two metres, sharing the space with others, personal hygiene including washing hands before and after use and using your own sports equipment.”
District officials said they intend to continue following provincial and Fraser Health guidelines closely when it comes to opening outdoor spaces in phases. Announcements will come through the district’s website and their social media pages as well.
