Lowville Park in Burlington closing due to COVID-19
One day after declaring a state of emergency and asking all local malls and non-essential businesses to close, the city reports that one of its green spaces will also be closing until further notice.
Lowville Park, near Guelph Line at Britannia, will be closed to the public starting on Monday, March 23.
This closure is part of the city’s continued efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and increase social distancing practices.
“Lowville Park has been very busy with visitors using the closed playground and picnic areas,” said Mayor Marianne Meed Ward. “Although many of our visitors have respected social distancing, there are reported concerns with crowding in some areas, parking lot capacity and people entering areas that are marked as closed.”
Similarly, Conservation Halton has closed down all of its parks in accordance with the Ontario government prohibiting gatherings of 50 or more people.
