City of Brandon Prohibiting Public Access to Additional Outdoor Recreation Amenities


March 31, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brandon, MB – In an effort to ensure community cooperation with the Province of Manitoba’s Public Health Orders regarding the limiting of public gatherings to 10 people or less, City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services has closed public access to the Kristopher Campbell Memorial Skate Plaza, effective immediately. Signage and fencing is being placed at the plaza today and we would ask that all members of the community respect these efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Access to the City of Brandon’s various picnic shelters and gazebos will also be restricted to deter gatherings, basketball hoops are being removed from City-maintained basketball courts in the community, and tennis nets and volleyball nets will not be installed in City of Brandon parks at this time.

Residents and visitors to Brandon are reminded that access to all City of Brandon-maintained playground structures and outdoor fitness equipment stations remains prohibited until further notice.

Parks/greenspaces, off-leash dog parks and walking/biking trails remain open at this time; however, the City of Brandon would stress that anyone accessing these spaces MUST practice safe physical distancing protocols as laid out by the Province of Manitoba.
