The City parks were closed to the public in mid March as the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread across the province. The city began a cautious re-opening plan last month, with the city's Dog Park on McKay Street the first of the civic spaces to re-open.
The move towards a wider re-opening comes after a number of other communities around the Northwest have already re-opened their community parks and facilities as the next phase of the COVID response rolls out.
Port Edward allowed its residents to access its parks and fields last Wednesday .
