Parks and Outdoor Spaces
Beaumont’s outdoor fields and recreation activities are available for use in accordance with current Provincial/AHS health measures and restrictions. The city’s decisions are being made carefully with the public’s safety top of mind and in line with public health orders and guidance from the Alberta government.
The city is following these principles for re-opening services and facilities:
- The health, safety and well-being of residents and employees
- Direction of the provincial government and chief medical officer of health
- Communicate risks and safety protocols to residents
- Include measures to ensure businesses and residents remain in compliance with health restrictions
- Determinations include consideration of the necessity, affordability, sustainability and compliance with health and safety requirements.
Residents must follow provincial health orders at all times while using city facilities, including maintaining physical distancing of at least two metres (six feet) and limiting gatherings within provincial requirements.
Do not use city parks, fields and facilities if you are feeling sick or have any symptoms of COVID-19. Use discretion – if it appears too crowded to maintain physical distancing of at least two metres (six feet), return at another time when it is less busy.
Please note that details are subject to change based on case numbers, public health orders, guidance from the Government of Alberta and other considerations. Up-to-date and detailed guidelines for the safe use of public spaces and facilities are available on the Albert government’s website.
