The Vancouver Park Board is closing all of its outdoor recreation facilities at the city’s beaches and public parks in a bid to encourage social distancing.

The parks and beaches themselves will stay open, but sports fields, tennis courts, volleyball courts, and skate parks are now closed.

Park Board staff will be working through the day to install signage and to limit access to these facilities, where possible.

Staff is also removing logs from beaches to discourage sitting close to others.
