Innisfil reopens ten playgrounds just in time for the weekend as it works to get all town parks ship-shape

Innisfil RecPlex, other recreation facilities to remain closed for now

A select few of Innisfil’s playgrounds are open as part of stage 3 of the province’s plan to reopen Ontario, and others should be ready to go soon.

Ten playgrounds opened in Innisfil as of Friday morning, and Town Hall says it will follow a gradual approach to reopening other facilities as it is safe to do so. The town’s Innisfil Recreation Complex and other facilities will remain closed for now.

“For many children and families, getting back to their favourite monkey bars and swings will feel like a significant milestone in the recovery process,” said Mayor Lynn Dollin. “We certainly appreciate everyone’s patience during our closure, and ask that families using the playgrounds continue to follow public health recommendations and posted signage.”

The following ten parks opened as of Friday morning:

  • 10th Line Park – 623 10th Line
  • Belle Ewart Park – 980 Emily Street
  • Centennial Park – 2870 7th Line
  • Cookstown Community Park – 20 Church Street, Cookstown
  • Crossroads Park – 2200 Jans Boulevard
  • Dempster Park – 2770 Dempster Avenue
  • Fennel’s Corners – 2220 Gilford Road
  • Innisfil Beach Park – 676 Innisfil Beach Road
  • Mapleview Park – 461 Mapleview Drive
  • Webster Park – 1945 Webster Boulevard

All other playgrounds remain closed at this time and will reopen through a phased approach in the coming weeks. This approach assists staff in completing mandatory inspections, installing new signage and ensuring the playgrounds are in safe condition prior to opening.
