Spray parks in Abbotsford set to reopen

Three sites reopen on Saturday, June 13 with physical-distancing measures

Spray parks in Abbotsford are reopening on Saturday, June 13.

The reopenings are at:

● Mill Lake Park, 2310 Emerson St.

● Shadbolt Park, 36086 Shadbolt Ave.

● Spud Murphy Park, 32285 Hillcrest Ave.

A city spokesperson said visitors are reminded to maintain physical distancing of two metres and are asked to stay home when sick.

Park users are reminded to bring their own hand sanitizer as not all playgrounds are in parks with washroom facilities. Playgrounds and sport courts – including tennis, pickleball, basketball and skate parks – have already reopened.

The spokesperson said the city continues to communicate with Fraser Health, as well as the provincial and federal governments, for information on revised best practices for reopening safely.
