  • Keep your skate park clean by using the trash cans.
  • Use the park at your own skill level, and use at your own risk.

How do we stay safe while using outdoor recreational amenities?

Everyone using these outdoor recreational amenities is required to physically distance from anyone who is not in their household. This means staying 2 meters or 6 feet away from other people.
