Petrolia Parks Open for More Outdoor Recreation – Playgrounds Remain Closed

Following the announcement last Friday about parks, playgrounds, and sports fields in Petrolia, we now have a more detailed list of available amenities in our public parks.

Petrolia is home to more than a dozen public parks and we are pleased to have the outdoor recreation options listed below available for families to use for fitness, relaxation, and activities. 

Director of Community Services and Facilities, Dave Menzies said, “With the nice weather in the forecast this weekend, we wanted to make sure that residents knew what options are available for them to get outside and enjoy our greenspaces and parks.”

We ask that residents share the parks and allow for many families to have an opportunity to use the sports fields while maintaining physical distancing.  Gatherings are limited to five or less as per the Province of Ontario.  Team sports of any kind are not permitted.  Spend time in our outdoors spaces with only your family members.

The chart below outlines the ways that you can access our parks at this time.  As this changes, we will provide an update to residents.

Physical distancing requirements of six feet or two metres remain in place, and gatherings of five or less are required. Residents are reminded that you can join our e-mail list for instant updates by sending an e-mail to Laurissa at lellsworth@petrolia.ca.  Staff are available to answer your questions at (519)882-2350 or by e-mail.
