Playgrounds reopening starting June 1

Media Advisory

Playgrounds across the North Shore will begin reopen on Monday, June 1.

Crews are preparing to welcome the community back to outdoor playgrounds, which have been closed since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The reopening applies to all playgrounds located in the City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver and District of West Vancouver as well as all school playgrounds and those overseen by the North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission.

Users should follow public health guidelines including maintaining a two metre physical distance and washing or sanitizing hands before and after use. While the playground equipment will be inspected prior to opening, it will not be sanitized.

With COVID-19 cases in BC now declining, and the encouragement from the Provincial Health Officer to safely enjoy the outdoors, sports facilities across the North Shore began reopening in mid-May.
