FURTHER PUBLIC SPACES UPDATE
Effective today, March 22, 2020, all Town of Bridgewater playgrounds and parks are closed to the public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, per Section 14 of the Nova Scotia Emergency Management Act. This closure also includes Bridgewater Skate Park and the South Shore Vet Dog Zone dog park.
Please also note that Town recreation facilities, such as softball and soccer fields, are considered to be parks and are, therefore, also CLOSED to the public at this time.
TRAILS -- REMAIN OPEN FOR NOW
Following direction from the Province of Nova Scotia, trails such as the Centennial Trail and those found at Woodland Gardens, Riverview Park, Glen Allan Park, Brookside Cemetery, and the track at Kinsmen Athletic Field, will remain open to the public for exercise, but social distancing protocols (six feet of distance from other users) MUST be adhered to by all trail users.
Bridgewater Police Service now has the authority to fine anyone defying social distancing protocols, as announced today by the Province of Nova Scotia.
While social distancing doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors, it does mean that you and your loved ones should make smart choices when going outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
