M.D. playgrounds and ball diamonds reopening to the public

May 26, 2020 – The Municipal District of Bonnyville is pleased to announce the reopening of M.D. playgrounds and baseball diamonds, as of Monday, June 1, 2020.

The playgrounds and ball diamonds were closed April 3 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These facilities are now being opened as per provincial guidelines. The M.D. is unable to sanitize these areas on a regular basis, so it incumbent upon users to sanitize and wash their hands. The ball diamonds are only open to unorganized play – there is to be no league games/tournaments held at this time.

Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health increased gathering limits from 15 people to 50 people last week. We want to remind residents to continue to follow the recommendations from the CMOH and continue to keep a friendly six feet of space between you and other people outside of your households and cohort families. We encourage those using our facilities to bring hand sanitizer with them, and use as necessary.

Please note – all M.D. outhouses, washrooms, change rooms, and shower facilities are still closed to the public. Please keep this in mind when heading out for your family fun time. 

When using these facilities, please help us keep our M.D. litter-free, and clean up any waste you may accumulate (including disinfectant wipes) during your visit.

We continue to encourage our residents to follow guidance from Alberta Health Services, and the directives of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. To keep up to date on COVID-19 in Alberta, please visit
