Conservation Halton closing all parks until further notice
While a lot of residents are desperate for some fresh air during the current pandemic, it’ll have to be somewhere other than Conservation Halton’s parks.
Conservation Halton reports that it will be closing all eight of its parks to help reduce transmission of COVID-19 after the parks began to reach maximum capacity this afternoon.
Trails and facilities at all parks have been closed until further notice, and access is not permitted.
Additionally, all Conservation Halton programs and events are cancelled until at least April 5.
“Conservation Halton is continuing to monitor the latest COVID-19 developments and is taking precautions to keep our workplace safe for staff, visitors and partners across the watershed,” Conservation Halton said.
“We have taken proactive steps to ensure the health and well-being of our people, our customers, our suppliers, and our communities, while ensuring we provide uninterrupted services where possible.”
