City of Trail Playgrounds and Spray Park Re-Open Thursday, June 11

Gyro Park Playground

The City of Trail Parks & Recreation Department is re-opening City-owned playgrounds* and the Gyro Park spray park starting Thursday, June 11, 2020 as part of the City’s COVID-19 plan to carefully re-open its outdoor amenities with a phased approach. 
*Please note the playground structure at Haley Park complex and the swing set at Pole Park will be undergoing maintenance and will remain closed until this work is complete. An update will be provided.

The playgrounds were officially closed on March 20, 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Since then, the City has been working closely with representatives from provincial and regional municipal governments to develop re-opening plans that include enhanced operating protocols to support the highest level of continued COVID-19 preventative measures for everyone in our communities.

All open playgrounds and the spray park will be signed with the following usage guidelines:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Physical distance of 2 metres at all times
  • Bring sanitizer to clean your hands
  • If the park is busy, try another time
  • Children only on the playground structures
  • Take turns, be courteous

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we all work together during our re-opening phases.  We also commend the members of our community for their ongoing diligence and dedication to COVID-19 prevention.  

The City’s phased re-opening updates can be viewed at www.trail.ca/COVID-19 or www.trail.ca/ReOpen.
