What’s up rec?
Parks have been winterized but there are still many opportunities to play.
The Rotary Park washroom has been closed for the season but you can take advantage of the nice walking track and outdoor exercise equipment. Beacon Street washrooms have also been closed for the season but play equipment can still be used.
