COVID-19 Update May 29

As the month of June approaches, the Town of Quispamsis is opening more of its facilities.

The BMX Dirt Jump Park on Chelsea Drive is open as of today, and the Ramps and Wheels Skateboard Park on Landing Court opens Wednesday. All sports fields and beach volleyball courts will open for public play on June 3 and for league play on June 15.

The regularly-scheduled opening of those facilities was delayed because of COVID-19.

The Town’s 17 kilometres of trails, dog park, community garden, tennis and pickle ball courts, and playgrounds opened earlier.

There are changes to our spring and summer programming. All town-sanctioned community events between now and September, including Canada Day, New Brunswick Day, Movies and Music in the Park, Mud Day, and Parks and Trails Day, have been cancelled.

The qplex ice surface, the Wave Pool, Moosehead Conference Centre, and Aquafina Walking Track will be closed for the summer due to restrictions that remain in place during the Yellow Level of the recovery plan.

The town is not accepting reservations for the use of Meenan’s Cove or the Arts and Culture Park to avoid public gatherings that would violate the provincial state of emergency.

Residents who are using public facilities must respect physical distancing of at least two metres at all times. People are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer and to sanitize their hands before entering, and after exiting, any facility.

As of now, outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people. If you are using any of our facilities, you must adhere to that restriction.
