“Parks are the lungs of the city, and they’re medicine for us.” – Fred Lum, The Globe and Mail
With many of us looking for ways to cope with the changes and uncertainty, it is important to remember to tend to our physical and mental health. Getting outdoors, breathing in the fresh air and getting physical exercise are all fantastic ways to take care of both. What better place to do so than @kivipark !
With social distancing and taking other necessary precautions, Kivi Park is a wonderful place to enjoy nature and disconnect from daily stress. With over 55 km of trails to explore for outdoor winter activities, we have something for everyone!
Please be advised that the playgrounds and buildings at the Park have been closed to limit access to high-touch areas, however, all of our trails remain open and in good condition. We strongly encourage all guests to practise social distancing while at the Park. Please also leave a full space open on each side of your car while parking and use the entire parking lot up when space permits. Also please remember the quietest way to enter the park is through Parking Lots 1 to 7 along Raft Lake Road.
Looking for some #MarchBreak Fun with the kids?
Being outside in nature can have a positive impact on both mental and physical health! Explore the trails at Kivi this week while searching the park for some of our scavenger hunt items and submit a photo with your completed list and you could have a chance to win a Family Day Pass! You do not have to touch the items, just collect a great photo collage of your winter treasures!
While the Park remains open, with the exception of Nina’s Way which is closed due to mild weather conditions, the playground and all buildings at the park are CLOSED at this time to reduce the amount of traffic in high touch areas. While using Kivi Park, please be diligent and implement social distancing between yourself and other park users. Ensure you wash your hands thoroughly before and after using the park, always cough into your arm or a Kleenex and keep gloves/mittens on at all times.
To avoid congesting parking lots, you are reminded that there are more isolated parking lots on Raft Lake Rd with park access and we encourage as many as people as possible to access through these parking areas.
Get outside, have fun, relax, but do so in a safe and mindful manner.
We ask all guests to please view the COVID-19 Update from our Executive Director prior to visiting Kivi Park. Please view the full update by following the link in our bio.
