Outdoor Recreation Facilities Opening Soon!

May 15, 2020

The District of Oak Bay is making preparations to re-open some outdoor recreation facilities by the weekend of May 21, 2020, specifically:

  • Tennis courts;
  • Pickleball courts;
  • Skatepark;
  • Lacrosse Box; and
  • Basketball Courts.

While Oak Bay acknowledges that members are eagerly anticipating the return of some of these physical activities, the District needs to undertake some safety and maintenance actions prior to opening, such as installation of appropriate signage including guidelines for safe use, cleaning of courts, and replacement of nets.

Oak Bay looks forward to welcoming you back to these facilities next week.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as the District continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and adjusting our response as appropriate. Once these facilities are opened, guests will be asked to familiarize themselves with the posted guidelines for safe use and to continue  following the guidelines of the Provincial Health Officer including:

  • Physical distancing from others (minimum 2 m/6 ft);
  • No sharing of equipment;
  • Bring hand sanitizer for hand hygiene; and
  • Staying home if you are sick.
