Recreational Facilities Update for North Grenville

June 30, 2020

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – The Municipality of North Grenville, in collaboration with the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Public Health Unit, is committed to protecting the health and safety of residents by carefully reviewing and identifying key safety measures, as part of its plan for recreational facilities for Stage 2 of the Province’s Re-opening.

With the gradual re-opening of our community, several of our facilities may look different and some services will be delivered in new or modified ways. It is imperative that we build upon the strong commitment that our community has demonstrated in adapting to these changes - and that we adhere to all public health guidelines to ensure the safety of the public and our employees.

Splash Pad at e-Quinelle Park
The splash pad will be open daily beginning Wednesday, July 1, 2020, from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm. Staff will be present on site at all times. Residents are asked to follow the rules and regulations posted on site to ensure the health and safety of users and staff.

North Grenville Municipal Centre Arenas
Arena 2 will be open for use beginning August 17, 2020 with Arena 1 opening on September 11, 2020. Municipal staff will be closely monitoring the decisions of the Province related to the use of our municipal arenas and will update our user groups and the public as more information becomes available. 

Sports fields
Our sports fields are open for casual use and training and skills development for up 10 people; however, organized games are not permitted in keeping with restrictions placed on sports fields as part of the Provincial Re-opening Plan.

Community Outdoor Pool
The Municipality of North Grenville has made the difficult decision to not open the Kemptville Pool for the 2020 season. The physical design and limitations of the community pool do not allow us to meet mandatory social distancing measures, or the provincial public health requirements for the general operation of municipal pools that would ensure the health and safety of users or operations staff.
