Outdoor recreation is gradually making its way back into local life.
Harrison Watersports’ floating water park on Harrison Lake is scheduled to re-open this Saturday (June 27) at 11 a.m.
According to the Watersports’ website, there are three time slots available each day: 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. A weekday pass runs $33.33 while weekend passes are $38.09. This is a significant change from the standard all-day passes offered in years before due to the need to keep safe from coronavirus. There are only 50 tickets available for each 2-hour slot. Water park staff encourage those interested in going to book online ahead of time. Once you enter the park, you will not be allowed to come and go this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
If the provincial guidelines change to allow more people into the water park at a time, Harrison Watersports will reassess the situation.
Elsewhere in the village, village officials are now allowing outdoor exercise equipment, racquet sports courts and playgrounds to be used as long as physical and hygienic practices are observed.
“Please be socially responsible when using public facilities and pay attention to posted signage,” Village officials said.
