Parks and Recreation Department
The Town of St. Anthony is committed to moving forward with various recreational activities as we enter Level 2 of COVID-19. Please see below the actions that will be taken to open recreation properties starting on Monday, June 29th, 2020. We ask all residents to do their part to protect themselves and others during these unprecedented times.
Playgrounds & Courts – Monday, June 29, 2020 Parks and Recreation Department will open bottom brook playground along with the tennis and basketball courts. Signage will be posted at all Town properties outlining expectations as per government guidelines. Recreation staff will open other playgrounds as time allows.
Skate Park - The skate park will be back in the same location as last year. Plans are to have this open within two weeks from June 29th.
Enforcement of Guidelines – Guidelines are established for everyone to follow. If the Town witnesses any abuse of facilities or individuals failing to follow guidelines, Council will review such and may close properties.
Canada Day – All Canada Day activities in the country will be done virtually. As a result, there will not be any Canada Day Celebrations in St. Anthony this year. The Town will be considering virtual activities for Canada Day and will provide updates once confirmed.
Pool - After much discussion, Council has regrettably decided that the St. Anthony Swimming Pool will remain closed for this summer. With the vast number of restrictions and guidelines and our short season, Council has no option but to focus on preparation for the summer of 2021.
Summer Program – The committee discussed various options and the Recreation Department will be making this information available once finalized.
Polar Center Walking Track – The walking track will reopen to the public on Monday, June 29th, 2020. The schedule will be Monday - Friday (8:30 am – 11:30 am). We ask walkers to maintain their personal bubbles and follow all COVID-19 restrictions while in our facility.
Polar Center Rentals - No decision has been made on floor rentals as we are still waiting on more direction from Recreation NL.
Softball Field – Construction is ongoing at the softball field; work is expected to take approximately 3 weeks. Once completed, Council will determine how it will operate the field under the guidelines set out by the Provincial Government.
The Town of St. Anthony would like to thank its residents for their understanding and patience as we try to start up our recreation facilities. Please carry sanitizer, wash your hands, and maintain social distancing!
