The city is preparing to reopen more outdoor amenities ahead of phase three of the Re-open Saskatchewan plan.
The city says tennis courts and disc golf in Bud Miller All Seasons Park will soon be open to the public depending on provincial guidelines currently being developed.
Weaver Park Campground has already started taking in bookings on June 1 and is limiting them to 50 per cent in accordance with provincial guidelines.
“The City has taken steps toward the gradual restoration of outdoor recreation services where possible, including the partial reopening of our municipal golf course in late May, followed by the campground on June 1,” Manager of Emergency Measures and Operations Jordan Newton says.
The Lloydminster Golf & Curling Centre reopened as part of the first phase on May 15 with the driving range and Pro Shop opening on May 22.
The public will not be able to access other municipal facilities such as the Servus Sports Centre and its fitness centre yet. Residents with a membership will receive an extension once the fitness centre reopens.
“The Re-open Saskatchewan plan serves as a guiding document. Each community must assess its own set of unique risks and challenges in establishing timelines, as the City of Lloydminster has done and continues to do.”
Phase three is set for June 8 and will allow restaurants and licensed establishments to open at half their capacity. Included in this phase are gyms and fitness facilities, childcare facilities, places of worship and any personal-service business not included in phase two. The city reminds all businesses to consult the provincial guidelines ahead of reopening.
The gathering limits will also be increased to 15 people for indoor public and private gatherings and 30 for outdoor gatherings.
A timeline on phase four hasn’t been announced yet. It includes indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and increasing public and private gatherings to 30 people.
