Outdoor Recreation Facilities Closed in City’s COVID-19 Response

The City of Victoria is closing all outdoor recreation facilities in public parks to help limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

This includes skate and bike parks, basketball courts, tennis courts, sports fields, outdoor gyms and more. 

Signs will be posted at these facilities to further notify the public of this decision.

Provincial public health advice is very clear – when people are outside their homes, they must maintain a physical distance of at least two metres.

Open spaces and trails in City parks remain open for people to get outdoors while maintaining the required physical distance.

This decision comes after the closure of City playgrounds and indoor recreation facilities last week.
