Playgrounds, washrooms next to re-open in Kimberley
All City of Kimberley playgrounds are set to re-open on Friday, June 5, with enhanced health and safety measures in place.
Also re-opening are the public washroom facilities at Rotary Park and the Skate Park.
Detailed signage will be placed at all parks and washrooms outlining expectations of proper use. Please note that City staff will not be sanitizing playground equipment as the BC Parks and Recreation Association states that the UV rays from the sun, as well as rain water, helps to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Washroom facilities will be cleaned once a day at opening with operating hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. each day.
All washrooms and playground equipment are ‘use at your own risk’.
City staff strongly encourages patrons to continue to practice safe physical distancing; stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of cold or flu; wash hands often; limit the number of people you are coming in contact with; and be patient with other children using equipment. Please pay attention to all posted signage and directions.
Thank you for your dedication to helping flatten the curve in Kimberley and in B.C. If you require further information, please contact the Operations Department at 250-427-9660 or email [email protected]
