Brandon, MB – In response to the Province of Manitoba’s most recent Public Heath Order taking effect today, December 11, access to the City of Brandon outdoor recreation facilities will begin to reopen today. This includes:
- Dog parks
- Toboggan hills
- Skating areas on retention ponds*
- Playground structures and equipment
- Outdoor fitness equipment stations located in the community
- Brandon Community Sportsplex track
- Kristopher Campbell skateboard plaza
*The above season temperatures have made ice surfaces increasingly unstable and fragile. Please use with discretion and at your own risk.
Flooding and preparation will begin on the skating oval, but it is not yet open to the public. Once the skating oval is ready for use, a public service announcement will be released.
Warming shacks will remain closed. Please refer to signage at the facilities.
The City of Brandon stresses that access to the above facilities is being restored with the expectation that anyone using those spaces must follow the Manitoba Public Health Orders, which can be found at manitoba.ca/covid19/restartmb/prs. Persons must maintain a separation of at least two metres from each other, unless they reside in the same residence.
Persons must not engage in recreational activities as part of a group of more than five persons, unless all persons in the group reside in the same residence. The re-opened status of these facilities will be monitored and re-evaluated if maintaining public safety becomes problematic.
