CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —



The City of Charlottetown is reminding the public to continue to heed public health orders and recommendations as the nicer spring weather draws more people outside.

Maintaining a minimum of two metres (six feet) of physical distance from others remains as important now as it was when the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19 strain) first began on the Island.

The Victoria Park cycling lane opened for the season on March 31 as an active transportation pathway.

The early opening of this interior lane was designed to provide additional space for the required physical distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

While the active transportation pathway remains open for this purpose, anyone using this pathway is asked to continue to be conscious of others, reduce speed if cycling, and practice physical distancing from others.

City sport and multipurpose courts and pads, including the skateboard park, tennis courts, basketball courts and ball hockey rink as well as city playground structures remain temporarily closed.

The annual opening of Victoria Row to pedestrians is still scheduled to take place on May 1 to provide another option for active transportation, and citizens are urged to continue to maintain physical distancing.
